To: Field Marshall, Duke Frederick of Wittenbuffel and the General Staff
His majesty King Leopold IV requests that the army be mobilised forthwith. His majesty takes this step with the greatest regret but must do so to ensure that we are fully prepared, especially with the rising of tension in the region and the fact that other countries are also mobilizing.
His majesty specifically asks that a corps of observation be setup in the province of Upper Belgravia to watch the border with Monrovia and to help the local administration deal with with a rise in brigandage and highway robbery.
His majesty also directs that the army corps of the province of Boldovia be moblised first and the guard corps in Wittenberg to be brought into readiness.
