Date9 October 1856

Content DescriptionReports that Berlin is to be the meeting point for despatches, including those from St Petersburg and Vienna; discusses the progress being made by Buchanan in Copenhagen; he has no knowledge of a general or separate treaty; his behaviour has been questioned but he is merely following orders; he does not see difficulties with the Transit Dues; the Sound Dues question should be settled by next April; Manteuffel believes the treaty to be nearly complete; Lord and Lady Granville have arrived from Kiel and dined with him [Bloomfield]; Lord Granville is pleased with his 'Russian Campaign'; suggests that a possible reason for Granville's lack of enthusiasm to return to Russia was that he was impressed by the Emperor but not by the Chancellor; relates news about Neûchatel, the attitude of the King [of Prussia], and of France.
