Afternoon: Grey tells Benckendorff
Posted on July 27th, 1914 by admin
Afternoon: Grey tells Benckendorff about his conversation with Lichnowsky. Benckendorff says he hopes Grey’s warnings will open the eyes of the German government, who appear to believe Britain will in all circumstances remain neutral. Grey thinks he has been sufficiently frank with Lichnowsky to dispel German confidence in British neutrality.
