Item 03 : General William Holmes Papers regarding capitulation, September-October 1914 - Page 86
28th September 1914:
To the Board,
By the terms of Capitulation of 17th September, I promised to give no resistance to the British Troops under Col. Holmes. It was agreed that all British subjects who were held prisoners should be released. I therefore request that Vice-Consul Jolley be given freedom to go wherever he may wish.
