Transcript Correspondence between His Majesty's Government and the Soviet Government respecting the Murder of Mr. C. F. Davison in January 1920. No. 1. Earl Curzon of Kedleston to.Mr. Leslie (Reval). (Telegraphic.) Foreign Office, October 2, 1920. Following for transmission to Chicherin, Moscow :— "His Majesty's Government have received a report from Mrs. Barbara Davison, lately resident at 77, Kronversky Prospekt, Petrograd, regarding the death of her husband, Charles Frederick Davison, civil engineer. Mr. Davison was arrested on 19th September at Petrograd by order of the Extraordinary Commission and taken to the prison at 25, Shpalernaya where he was kept for four months, though no charge had been brought against him. No reply was given by the competent authorities to Mrs. Davison's repeated enquiries on his behalf, and finally on the night of 16th- 17th January, 1920, Mr. Davison was shot, a fact which was not disclosed to his widow until a week later. No reason for his execution was given at the time, or since, though Mrs. Davison and her friends, including a member of the Commissariat for Foreign Affairs, have on various occasions attempted to secure the required information from the Extraordinary Commission. " His Majesty's Government are the more horrified at receiving this report, because they had previously received information that a decree, copies of which were openly published in Petrograd on 17th January, was already in existence abolishing capital punishment. They therefore request that immediate enquiries be instituted at Petrograd with a view to ascertaining the perpetrators of this outrageous crime, and that they may be furnished by the Soviet Government with a full statement. "If no such statement is forthcoming they will have no alternative but to deduce that Mr. Davison was murdered in cold blood with no charge preferred, and they will reserve to themselves the right of demanding full compensation for his widow and son." 1433 875 4/23 F.O.P.
