Transcript 11 4. Demanding the publication of an official disavowal by the Soviet Government in their official organ, the "Izvestia." I may add that I reserve to myself the right to institute proceedings for libel against Vadim Chaikin, and against any or all of the newspapers who have published any of the charges against me at such time as there shall be a civilised and responsible Government in Russia. I have, &c. R. TEAGUE JONES. No. 7. Mr. Peters to M. Litvinof. Sir, Moscoir, December 20, 1922. I am directed by His Majesty's Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs to refer to the case of the twenty-six Baku commissars who were executed m Transcaspia in September, 1918. During the past four years certain charges have been made against British officials, both by the Russian press and by the Russian authorities, accusing British officials of complicity in this affair. The charges in the press commenced at Baku in 1918, have been subsequently reproduced, and have continued to appear tit intervals in the Moscow papers up to the present year. The author of most of these articles appears to be a lawyer named Vadim Chaikin. who also recently published a book entitled "The Execution of Twenty-six Baku Commissars," in which he recapitulated all his charges against the British military authorities. The press and private individuals have, however, not been alone in formulating such accusations. M. Weinstein. writing on the 7th March on behalf of the People's Commissariat for Foreign Affairs, referred to "the execution of the twenty-six Baku commissars, mercilessly killed with the complicity of the High Military Command of the British Occupation Forces in the Transcaspian Province in September. 1918." Reference to this affair has also been made verbally in similar terms by both Deputy Commissaries for Foreign Affairs in conversation with the British agent and with the acting agent. Those accusations have been brought to the notice of His Majesty's Government, who have made a careful examination of all the available evidence in this connection, but have failed to discover any ground whatsoever upon which such charges could bo maintained. Apart from showing that the accusations are baseless, the evidence in the possession of His Majesty's Government points to the fact that they are founded on deliberate misstatements. His Majesty's Government, therefore, desire that the accusations which have boon made by the Soviet Government against the British military authorities in connection with the murder of the Baku
