PART VII.

Duties connected with the Imperial Russian

Navy.

CHAPTER I.—Arrival of Warships.

Immediately on arrival in port of a Russian ship of war, the Consul
must send his agent to the commander to point out to him a safe
anchorage. This agent must also inform the commander whether
any epidemic or infectious diseases exist in the place, whether any
local malady rages, and whether, in general, it is necessary to take
any particular measures of precaution for the health of the crew.
He must further acquaint him with the quarantine regulations, where
such exist, and the particular police regulations and local customs
which are necessary to be observed.1

On the occasion of their first visit on board, which must be made
in uniform, the Consul-Generals receive a salute of nine guns, and
the Consuls a salute of seven guns. No mark of honour is paid them
in a port where there is a representative of His Majesty the Emperor.
Vice-Consuls and other commercial agents of an inferior rank are not
entitled to a salute.2

The official visits between the Consuls and commanders of ships
of war must be made in the following order :—

1. Consuls-General, Consuls, and other Consular Agents must pay
the first visit to the commanders of a squadron or small squadron
flying the commander’s pendant, immediately on their arrival in port,
if not prevented by the weather.

2. The commander of a ship on his arrival in the port pays the
first visit to the Consul-General.

3. Consuls and Vice-Consuls must pay the first visit to a
commander of a ship of war.

4. Official Visits are only paid on the first arrival of the ship of
war in the port or a place where a Consul resides.

5. These visits must be paid within 24 hours, if the weather or
other serious hindrances do not interfere.3

The Consul will transfer to the commander of a man-of-war the
police control over all the Russian merchant ships in the port. In
case of disobedience on the part of the crew, or any disturbance which
may take place on board a merchant vessel, the Consul must ask
the assistance of the commander of the ship of war to reduce the
crew to obedience and to re-establish order.4

As the naval authorities require to be constantly posted as to
the whereabouts of Russian ships of war when on long voyages in
