the letter to Serbian prince Aleksandar Karadjordjevic, in April 1856, prince
Danilo expresses his gratitude on textbooks sent from Serbia:
"This deed serves
like a pledge for new and strong brotherhood, which will be base for our

and everything named and called - Serb."
the letter to Napoleon III from late May 1856 prince Danilo says about Turkish oppression:
"To enslave us to them by through famine,
