Belgium Consul Speaks. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 13 March 1915
Belgium Consul. Speaks.: At the public meeting convened by the Mayor on Thursday week, Mr. Ed. Lahlwers, Consul- General for Belgium, said what was being sought of them was beiug asked for friends. Britishers and. Belgians had al ways been friends-history went to show that they had never fought one against thd other. Belgians, like Bri tishers, desired to remain the same on the tuap, with only one signature, and the same respect for something that they did not know in Germany-their honor. The Australian public seemed to be afraid that part of their gifts of food would fall into the hands of Ger mans, but he could assure themn that since the National Committ.ee on the 1st of January had taket in hand.the distribution of food to Belgians, its transports had niever been stopped or interfered with. Germany had also promnised to ask for no further food in Belgium. This was easy perhaps, be cause there was no more food there. He hoped that the assistance sought would be only for a few wee...
