Lady Harriet Jephson

Altheim, Germany

Altheim, Germany

Villa Buchholz, Altheim, Germany. – Last night a herald went round the town and roused everyone, blowing his trumpet and crying, “Kommen Sie heraus! Kommen Sie alle fort!” This was a call to the reservists, all of whom are leaving Altheim. To-day the crowd cheered madly, sang “Heil Dir im Sieger Kranz,” and “Deutschland über alles,” showing the utmost enthusiasm. To my horror, I find that the banks here refuse foreign cheques, and will have nothing to do with letters of credit. I have very little ready money with me, and the situation is not a pleasant one!
