Mr. Seward to Mr. Campbell
Sir: Your despatch of the 5th ultimo, No. 7, has been received, and so much of it as relates to Count Platten’s request concerning the courtesy extended by the Secretary of the Navy, on a late occasion, to a Swedish captain of marine, has been communicated to the Navy Department. I thank you for the information you have given me relative to the anniversary of the Swedish union.

James H. Campbell, Esq., &c., &c., Stockholm.
