Afternoon: Lichnowsky calls on Grey

Posted on July 30th, 1914 by admin

Afternoon: Lichnowsky calls on Grey. Following a telegram from Bethmann he is also trying to get Grey to put pressure on Russia to stop its mobilisation against Austria-Hungary and to persuade France to stop its military preparations at once.
Grey tells Lichnowsky he believes the French are not making real war preparations such as calling up reservists. He says he is going to talk to the Paul Cambon and will also talk Benckendorff in the sense desired. He hopes that Bethmann’s mediation efforts are successful.
