Letter from British soldier datelined Frederiksberg 17 August 1807 to London, Great Britain. The writer, Jackson, writes '' 'I've arriv'd at this place on the 17th and much to my surprise without opposition. The men offer'd every advantage on landing and our night march afterwards was a very hazardous performance. We expected a formidable resistance here, but after some shew of cavalry - the Danes retired''. ''I am well mounted on a Danish post horse taken the first day and he is worth bringing to England.''. On August 16th 30.000 British troops landed in Vedbæk, and then marched to Copenhagen. This letter is written the day after the landing. A historical letter which finally led to the bombardment of Copenhagen 2 September.
