Date10 May 1855
Extent5 ff
Content DescriptionThe success of the Vienna Conference has dwindled; no solution seems acceptable to Britain and Russia; would be helpful if Austria entered the field once her position with Prussia was secure; had sent for two copies of a paper laid before Parliament concerning Danish neutrality; action on this may do more harm than good but the Danish were trading with Russia and not co-operating with the naval blockade; says he acted correctly in dealing with Madame de Danner and notes her influence on the King.
