A little-known aspect of N.Turgenev foreign-policy activity within the period from 1813 to 1816 is analysed in the article, supported by new archival sources. It was an important period for Russia in the context of development of its foreign policy. Post-Napoleonic restructuring of the world, new system of relationship between European countries - all this was a good school of diplomacy for Turghenev. By his wit and brilliance he won sympathies of such competent persons as Baron Friedrich Stein, diplomat D.M.Alopeus, Count K.V.Nesselrode, Foreign Collegium Minister. Turgenev started his diplomatic carrier as a Russian Commissary of the Central Administrative Department of allied governments and shortly became a private secretary and a right-hand man of Baron Friedrich Stein, Head of Central Department. Upon termination of the Central Department, Turgenev continued his diplomatic activities as Russian representative in the Liquidation Commission, then he becomes assistant of Alopeus, Administer of Lotharingia, and Nesselrode, Foreign Minister. He was entrusted with important practical tasks. Participation right of the Russian Empire in most income items of the conquered territories, transfer of Saxony under the jurisdiction of Russia, turning back the attempts of Hannover to gain part of Russian share in French and Dutch debts, and an inconsiderably small sum as compared with the sums of other states, which Russia had to pay to the allied countries - all this can be considered as merits of N.I.Turgenev, who though having no diplomatic experience at the beginning of his carrier with Stein, had acquired by the moment of returning to Russia the skills good enough to compete in doing business with a good many of diplomats of that time.
