Sir George B. Rumbold (17 August 1764 - 15 December 1807), British diplomat, authentic, autographed document (DS). This one page document measures approximately 6" x 8" in size and is dated January 27, 1804.

The document is a receipt for payment to Lord Hawkesbury in the amount of 50 pounds.

This document is relevant to the times of the French Revolution and Napoleon because during the beginning of Napoleon’s reign (1804), many of his political actions went against convention to better assure the possibility of Italy and France under one rule. The Tsar of the Germanic System, became annoyed by the seizure of the duc d'Enghien on German territory, and by other high-handed actions against the Hanse cities and recalled his ambassador from Paris. Napoleon showed his indifference to the opinion of the Tsar by ordering the seizure of the British envoy at Hamburg, Sir George Rumbold (24th of October); but set him free on the order of the King of Prussia, with whom he desired to remain on friendly terms.

This one page, untranslated document is crisply signed by Rumbold at the conclusion. It is in good to very good condition, with overall light toning not affecting the signature. The document contains some scattered creases and expected intersecting folds. On the reverse in the left margin are remants of a previous mounting. The bottom margin is slightly frayed as well.
