  • Scope and Contents

    Robert Liston's general instructions were to report on the progress of the Russo-Swedish war, and the official papers contain copies of reports from Swedish generals. His reports also deal with the internal structure of the Swedish government, and with economic affairs. There is a long memorandum on economics drawn up by a Swedish statesman for Sir John Sinclair, who had asked Liston to secure such a report for him.
