Late morning: Rumbold sees Jagow to ask Germany to support a British request to extend the time limit. Jagow says he has already asked the German ambassador in Vienna to do this.

He says Germany will support Grey’s four-power mediation proposal if relations between Vienna and St Petersburg became “threatening”. [More]
