Papers of Sir Robert Liston while British Representative at Copenhagen., 1803-1804.

Identifier: MSS.5602-5607

Scope and Contents

Robert Liston was sent on an extraordinary mission to Denmark empowered to sign a convention with Denmark and Russia guaranteeing that peace would not be concluded with France until any territories Denmark lost had been restored to her. After the closing by the British of the Elbe and the Weser, any prospect of a rapprochement with Denmark faded and Liston was recalled.
