Russian Elective Consular Officers should also be
in a position, at all times, to supply accurate and
complete information on matters relating to the Consular
service, to Russian legislation where it concerns foreign
individuals and foreign trade with Russia, and to legal
and other matters important to foreigners who have
interests in Russia, or who are connected with Russian

The present work is an attempt to supply this
deficiency. Besides covering the whole ground of the

twenty-eight years of State service at the Russian Foreign
Office and at different Consular posts.

Austria-Hungary, Bulgaria and Turkey before the European

sanctioned again on the conclusion of peace.

Consular business. The Guide may also be found useful
by State Consuls, Legations and Embassies ; for w horn

extracts and quotations from laws, regulations and
