The scrap of paper - Prussia's perfidy - Britain's bond ... Enlist to-day. LOC Summary: Poster showing signatures and seals on a treaty, with lengthy text. LOC Notes: Text continues: The Treaty of 1839 (which the German Chancellor tore up, remarking that it was only "a scrap of paper") said: "Belgium....shall form an independent and perpetually neutral state. It shall be bound to observe such neutrality towards all other states." Germany has trampled on the Treaty she signed. Can Britons stand by while Germany crushes an innocent people?.
