Introduction

In 1721, Sir John was employed in the same way, his mission being, however, not only to protect Sweden, but also to lend moral support to the mediatory efforts of the British minister at Stockholm. He sailed from the Nore on April 13th with a fleet of twenty-one ships of the line, two fireships, three bombs, and two tenders, and with Rear-Admiral Francis Hosier (W.), and Rear-Admiral Edward Hopsonn (B.), in command under him. His appearance in the Baltic undoubtedly favoured the conclusion of peace between the belligerents : and on September 10th hostilities between Sweden and Russia were formally terminated by the Treaty of Nystadt. Sir John dropped anchor at the Nore on October 20th.
