Letter from Carl Abel

Author:
Abel, Carl, 1837-1906
Date:
1904-09-23
Description:
Carl Abel writes to his "dear friend" to say that the Russian Government inserted an anonymous letter in the London Sunday Times outlining a suggested peace for the Russo-Japanese War in which Russia would evacuate Manchuria, pay a fee to Japan, and Japan would maintain control of Korea and "rent" Port Arthur from China. Abel notes that while this seems improbable, it is an idea from the Russian government and they are eager to end the war quickly.
