  • Series I: Correspondence

    (This series consists of several sub-groups of incoming and outgoing correspondence. For the period prior to and immediately following the revolution, there are copies of dispatches sent, as well as received, by the Russian Imperial Embassy in London. Beginning with 1922 and extending through 1929 the arranged correspondence consists exclusively of carbon copies of "Reports" submitted by E.V. Sablin to the Council of Ambassadors in Paris. By 1930 these reports are interspersed with carbon copies of miscellaneous other outgoing correspondence, and by 1936 this sub-group consists exclusively of the latter. For the 1940s the arranged correspondence, both incoming and outgoing, is grouped around individual cases on whose behalf Sablin intervened. Also incorporated into the series are letters received by E.V.t-Sablin and his wife Nadezhda Ivanovna; carbon copies of letters sent by Sablin to V.A. Maklakov, his most constant correspondent; and a small series of correspondence files grouped around individual subjects.)
