Immediately after the signing: A telegram arrives from Lichnowsky. Grey is proposing that if Germany does not attack France, Britain will remain neutral in a Russo-German war and also guarantee the neutrality of France. The Kaiser is delighted. He declares that Germany must now deploy all its forces in the East. Moltke says this is impossible and a very heated argument ensues.
They finally agree the British proposal should be accepted, but mobilisation along the French frontier will continue, and they will study the possibility of redeploying forces to the East. The Kaiser sends a personal message to King George supporting the British proposal.
