Copy of despatch addressed by the Marquess of Lansdowne to His Majesty's ambassadors at Paris and St. Petersburgh

A copy of a letter sent by Henry Petty-Fitz Maurice, British Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, to Britain's ambassadors in Paris and St. Petersburg, with instructions to share the information with the French and Russian governments. The letter discusses an agreement which had been signed between Great Britain and Japan in August 1902 but which was not made public, so as not to interfere with the negotiations between Russia and Japan.
