Transcript "■•-■ HUM 35 No. 51. Russian Charge d Affaires at Berlin to Russian Minister for Foreign Affairs. Berlin, July 16 (29), 1914. i (Telegramme.) Sur ma question s'il avait une reponse de Vienne relativement k votre proposition de pourparlers prives a Saint-Peters- bourg, le Secretaire d'Etat a repondu negativement. II declare qu'il lui est fort difficile d'agir sur Vienne, sur- tout ouvertement. Parlant a Cambon, il a meme ajoute qu'en cas d'une pression trop evidente FAutriche se haterait de mettre FAllemagne en presence d'un fait accompli. Le Secretaire d'Etat dit qu'il a recu aujourd'hui un telegramme de Pourtales d'ou il constate que plus que les premiers jours vous etes dispose a trouver un compromis acceptable pour tous.

He declares that it is very difficult for him to produce any effect at Vienna, especially openly. He even added, in speaking to Cambon, that were pressure brought to bear too obviously, Austria would hasten to face Germany with a fait accompli. The Secretary of State tells me that he received a telegram to-day from Pourtales, stating that you seemed more inclined than you previously were to find a compromise acceptable to all parties. I replied that presumably you had been in favour of a compromise from the outset, provided always that it were acceptable, not only to Austria, but equally to Russia. He then said that it appeared that Russia had begun to mobilise on the Austrian frontier, and that he feared that this would make it more difficult for Austria to come to an understanding with us, all the more so as Austria was mobilising against Servia alone, and was making no preparations upon our frontier. I replied that, according to the information in my possession, Austria was mobilising upon the Russian frontier also, and that consequently we had to take similar steps. I added that whatever measures we might, perhaps
