RUMANIA, like the
other small nations, is paying a bloody price for her vindication of
the principles of Right—the bedrock of the Allied cause.
Her plucky intervention in the Great War, notwithstanding what had
befallen Belgium, Serbia and Montenegro; the implicit faith of her
people in the righteousness of the Allied cause; and the gallantry
of her troops excite the admiration of all the Free Races.
The British Red Cross Society and Order of St. John has rendered
great assistance on the battlefields of Rumania with hospitals well
staffed and medical supplies.
We owe a debt to Rumania. Every copy of MY COUNTRY sold adds to
The Times Fund for Sick and Wounded, for which purpose this
tribute by Queen Marie to the little-known natural and architectural
beauties of her country is published. Should any reader, as a result
of this book, desire to send a further contribution, this may be
addressed to the publishers, Messrs. Hodder & Stoughton, St. Paul's
House, Warwick Square, London, E.C., marked MY COUNTRY, and
will be duly acknowledged in the columns of The Times.
