9.30 P.M.: Conservative leaders meet. They know about the promise to France of naval protection but are disappointed with Asquith’s formal reply to their letter which repeats the line Britain is under no obligation to France or Russia to give them naval or military support. They suspect the government is wavering and decide they should see Asquith as soon as possible the next morning.
