To the Brothers of the Englishmen, the Danes:
Vice-Admiral Lord Nelson has been commanded to spare Denmark, when she no longer resists. The line of defence which covered her shores has struck to the British flag: but if firing is continued on the part of Denmark, he must set on fire all the prizes he has taken, without having the power of saving the men who have so nobly defended them. The brave Danes are the brother, and never should be the enemies, of the English.
Dated on board His Britannic Majesty's ship Elephant, Copenhagen Roads, 2 April 1801.
Nelson and Bronte, Vice-Admiral, under the command of Admiral Sir Hyde Parker.
