Transcript 8 Davison had any relations with Sir Paul Dukes. As M. Chicherin claims that the execution was carried out only after proper trial and in accordance with Soviet law, you should request to be allowed to examine the record of the evidence brought before the court and of its proceedings. In the meanwhile you should inform M. Chicherin that His Majesty's Government reserve full liberty of action. If the evidence or the proceedings, on examination, prove to be faulty or insufficient, His Majesty's Government must insist on full compensation being paid without delay to Mr. Davison's widow. If this is refused or the record of the court is withheld, even publicity will be given to this scandalous case, the injustice of which the Soviet Government itself, by its action, would thus appear to confirm. I am, &c. CURZON OF KEDLESTON. I No. 4. .1/;'. Moult/ornery Grove to Soviet Government. Memorandum. The Acting British Agent presents his compliments to the People's Commissary for Foreign Affairs, and has the honour to state that he has been instructed by his Government to draw attention to the case of a British subject, Mr. Charles Frederick Davison, who was shot near Petrograd on the night of the 16th-17th January, 1920.

With regard to the first part of this statement, His Majesty's Government have now definitely ascertained that Sir Paul Dukes had no dealings with Mr. Davison, nor even knew of his existence. With regard to the second part, His Majesty's Government request that this mission should be allowed to examine the record of the evidence brought before the court and of the proceedings of the trial. In the meantime, His Majesty's Government reserve full liberty of action. If the evidence or the proceedings, on examination, prove
