4-5 Jun 1800 consented to evacuate the town of Genoa, and, with the 8000 of his troops that were able to march, retire to Nice. In some preparatory conferences held on shore between General d'Ott, Lord Keith, and General Masséna, the latter expressed as much contempt for Austria, as he did respect for England ; observing to Lord Keith, " Milord, si jamais la France et l'Angleterre s'entendre, elles gouverneraient le monde." Much more passed in the same strain. There was, no doubt, a little policy in all this ; and it may indeed be gathered from an apparently authentic account of the negotiation for the surrender of Genoa, that the French general seldom paid a compliment to the British admiral or nation, without exacting in return some solid concession. On the 5th, the Minotaur, Audacious, and Généreux 74s, Charon store-ship, Pigmy cutter, and a small Neapolitan squadron, anchored in the mole of Genoa.
30 Aug 1800 taken on the Mediterranean station the boats St. Antonio and St. Maria.
