With reference to this melancholy event a correspon- dent writes as follows :— "It is due to the memory of the victims of this dreadful tragedy, Englishmen who have been murdered in a foreign country, that the following points should be clearly under- atood:- 1. That the expedition to Marathon was undertaken with the full knowledge and consent of the Greek Government, uuder the formal protection of an escort, and even. as there is reason to believe, with the assurance that such protee- tion Was unnecessary. 2. That the capture of the whole party occurred within a very few miles of Athens, and that when it had so taken place the means of ransom to the last farthing were imme- diately forthcoming, without reference to the Greek Govern- ment. 3. That the Greek Government were distinctly warned that any employment of force against the brigands would be followed by the massacre of the prisoners, and that they gave a solemn promise, which Was communicated to the brigands that they should not be molested. That, false to this promise, the Greek Government did send, or allow to be sent, troops, who surrounded the brigands, and thus deliberately provoked the massacre. 5. We know that the annesty was a vital point with the brigands, and would have saved the prisoners. The Greek Government refused this on apparently frivolous grounds but assuming that their objection to It was reasonable, it was at least a matter for further consideration. By attacking the brigands, the Greek Government destroyed all chance of success, and are thus now wholly and solely responsible to the English people."
