Transcript revolutionary conspiracy background. The circumstances demanded that during investigation materials of the case should not be made known and no person could be allowed to visit those arrested. In this respect it was not possible to make an exception in Davison's case. The ease was quite notorious at the time in Petrograd, and Davison's wife could not be in ignorance of this matter." No. 3. The Marquess Curzon of Kedleston to Mr. Hodgson (Moscow). Sir, Foreign Office, January 3, 1922. In September, 1920, my attention was drawn to a report from Mrs. Barbara Davison, formerly resident at 77, Kronversky Prospekt, Petrograd, regarding the death of her husband, Charles Frederick Davison, civil engineer. It appeared that Mr. Davison was arrested on the 19th September, 1919, at Petrograd by the Extraordinary Commission and taken to the prison at 25, Shpalernaya where he was kept prisoner for four months, although 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 the 16th-17th January, 1920, Mr. Davison was shot under exceptionally brutal circumstances. No reason for his execution was given at the time, although Mrs. Davison and her friends, on various occasions, attempted to obtain the required information. 2. These facts were communicated by me to M. Chicherin by telegram en clair on the 2nd October, 1920, and I at the same time requested him to institute immediate enquiries with a view to justice being done and full compensation paid. 3. M. Chicherin's reply was received on the 26th December, 1920, He stated that Mr. Davison owed his arrest and execution to Sir Paul Dukes's activities, whereby he became involved in the so-called fuel scandal of Benislavsky and Sorgenfrey in Petrograd. He added that Mr. Davison was condemned to death on the 15th January, 1920, at a session of the Presidium of the Extraordinary Commission of Petrograd in the presence of five juridically competent members, in accordance with regulations issued on the 2nd November, 1918, for Extraordinary Commissions and with the decree of the All-Russian Central Executive Committee of the 22nd June, 1919, articles 2, 4, and 6. 4. It has since been ascertained from Sir Paul Dukes that he had no dealings with Mr. Davison, nor indeed knew of his existence. It would appear, therefore, that the execution of Mr. Davison was nothing less than the judicial murder of a British subject under revolting circumstances upon trumped-up evidence. 5. I should be glad, therefore, if you would draw M. Chicherin's attention to his statement of the case and formally deny that Mr.
