Spring Rice, Cecil, Sir, 1859-1918
Date:

Description:
Cecil Spring Rice details, in confidence, the events leading up to the signing of the Treaty of Portsmouth, including his information that Sergei Vitte had been ordered to find a pretext to break off negotiations, and he did not. Spring Rice discusses Vitte's reaction to the Anglo-Japanese Alliance. He also discusses the careful balancing act that is Anglo-French-German relations, and how a Russian alliance with some of the parties could destabilize the whole.
