Sir: Your despatches from No. 97, of the 13th ultimo, to No. 100, of the 27th ultimo, have been received.

The President has read with much satisfaction the reply of his Majesty to your remarks on presenting the pistols. Before the receipt of your despatches Nos. 99 and 100, an interesting note had been received at this department upon the subject of the international agricultural exhibition to be held at Hamburg in July next, from Mr. Schleiden, the minister resident of the Hanseatic republic, accredited to this government, and a copy of this note had been communicated to Congress by the President, with a view to the adoption of such measures in relation to the subject as might be deemed expedient.

I am, sir, your obedient servant,


Bradford R. Wood, Esq., &c., &c., &c., Copenhagen.
