Chapter Summary

On Saturday, 14 January 1854, the day on which the Examiner published the calls to arms of the citizens of Chester and Sheffield, the peripatetic Rosetti, Ştefan Golescu and Dumitru Brătianu finally arrived in Belgrade, hoping that war would be declared, enabling them to go to the Danubian port Vidin and organise their contribution to the military conflict. Passing through the Serbian village Milanowitz on 25 January, Rosetti stopped on the banks of the Danube to wash his face and have a drink of what to him was the water of a sacred, symbolic river, the river about which he had written not so long before to Michelet. While Rosetti and his associates were campaigning in the Balkans, the younger Bratianu brother, Ion, was still fighting a war of his own as his trial in the Hippodrome affair continued in Paris.
