Frederick William. A patch from Amsterdam to "The Sun" says that German newspaper? arriving in Holland contain tho mes ?ape in question.

[i countries it is held to be Turkey's duty to spread the European culture withheld from them by England, France and Russia?that is, German and Anal arian culture. Therefore, when Germany and Austria-Hungary ?'approve Tur? key's honorable war it is ?? ect, by the maintenance in Turkey of a nationality strong *Uid vigorous in us civilisation, to open ? t?ijrough which the civilization of Europe will Stream over and enrich Asia ami Africa?that Asia and that Africa in which th? if the Trip!?'
