Chapter Summary

The Brighton Herald of 27 September carried a highly sympathetic appeal, meant to mobilise the English public, a public which, by then, had become quite expert in using the ever-expanding opportunities for pressurizing its political class. In the final days prior to the meeting, Dumitru Brătianu Ruge and his wife, Agnes, left no detail to chance: the Romanian tri-coloured flag - sent by Brătianu and the Union Jack were both hoisted on the neo- classical façade of the imposing Brighton Town Hall. Towards the end of the Brighton meeting, the lawyer Montagu Scott moved a resolution asking the British government to commit itself to the union of the five million Romanians, a union already agreed on in principle by Lord Clarendon at the Congress of Paris.
