Account of an Interview with Emperor Alexander I of Russia
			
2

The Emperor generally calls upon her every evening at seven 

O'clock in order to converse on spiritual subjects, it was on this 

account I carried my letter to her, and also one from the Duke 

of Gloucester, to the Emperor, which was intended as an introduction 

of me to the latter Personage.  The Baroness assured me that she 

would deliver both of them into his Majesty's hands as soon as 

she could see him.

     In the course of two days I reciev'd a Message from 

the Baroness that the Emperor had reciev'd and read both the 

letters in her presence and that he was apparently much pleased 

with them.  He desired her to instruct me to thank the Duke of 

Gloucester for his letter of introduction of me to him and with 

respect to my own letter, that part of it had given him 

peculiar satisfaction, wherein I had mentioned the names of those 

three good Men whose conversation had so much interested 

him when in London.  He desired  her to add, that he was then 

exceedingly occupied, but that in a short time he would make 

an arrangement for seeing me.

                          On Friday 22nd Sept, I Recieved a 

Message from the Baroness Krudener, that the Emperor desired 

my attendance at her house the next day at eleven in the morning
