The Ambassador in Great Britain (Page) to the Secretary of State
London, August 18, 1914, 11 p.m.

403. I have just received the following cipher telegram from Gerard at Berlin:
Please inform British Government that I advise them to allow no Germans to leave England or any British Dominions until I obtain leave British subjects to leave Germany.
This seems to me too important a subject to act on without explicit instructions from our Government. I hold awaiting instructions.
