Papers of Sir Robert Liston while British Representative at Constantinople., 1794-1795, undated.

Identifier: MSS.5570-5582

Scope and Contents

Robert Liston's earliest dispatches report the outbreak of trouble between the Jews and the British members of the East India Company's factory at Bassera; but his main preoccupation was the predominance of French influence at the Turkish court. A series of letters discusses the question of tariffs paid by Russian merchants in Turkey, which Liston persuaded the Turks not to raise.
