Posted on August 4th, 1914 by admin

7.00 P.M.: Goschen calls on Jagow again. This time he has the British ultimatum sent in the afternoon.
He reads it to Jagow. “Unless Imperial Government can give assurance by 12 o’clock that night that they will proceed no further with their violation of Belgian frontier and stop their advance, I have been instructed to demand my passports and inform the Imperial Government that His Majesty’s Government will have to take all steps in their power to uphold neutrality of Belgium”.
Jagow says that his answer is the same. Goschen says in that case he has to ask for his passports. He asks to see Bethmann and Jagow eagerly agrees.
