Date8 April 1863
Extent4 ff
Content DescriptionReports that Poland is at the centre of events; England, France and Austria have agreed the tone of the communication to be sent to Russia; Lord Russell keeps his thoughts on the subject to himself; suggests that this may be from idleness; has heard from Henry Elliot who is due to visit en route to Copenhagen, but Lord Russell has sent him instead to Turin and Paris; does not see an opening for Elliot unless Rio becomes vacant; is pleased that Karolyi is to remain in Berlin; Rechberg does not know where Karolyi has been, but supposes he is after an [unspecified] Russian lady.

States that Finkerston of Cracow went to Poland to trade in corn and not to cause trouble, and he has now gone to Dantzick [Danzig]; discusses Buchanan's house in Berlin and the lack of work carried out on it by Lord A. Loftus; refers to Denmark and the Schleswig-Holstein negotiations at Frankfurt; mentions the cost of dinners given to celebrate the marriage [of Edward and Alexandra] given by Napier and Cowley.
