The volume also includes copies of correspondence relating to the treaty, including letters exchanged between the High Commissioner to Constantinople, Sir Horace George Montagu Rumbold, who signed the Treaty of Lausanne on behalf of the British Government, and the Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ismet Pasha [Mustafa İsmet İnönü].
