Extract of a letter of the King of Montenegro to the President of the United 
States of America, Paris, 7th January 1919 - full text to follow.

‘The union of Montenegro with its Jugoslav brothers? 
‘But all my life I have been the most resolute and most listened to partisan 
of it! Only, I have always felt that it was necessary to leave my people an 
independence which they have so dearly bought by five long centuries of 
strife, and I have always proclaimed that in the formation of a Jugoslav 
community each member ought to preserve its autonomy. This I restated in 
October 1918. No Jugoslavia is possible, in my opinion, without liberty and 
equality among its members.'
