No. 23.
Mr. Rufus Magee to Mr. Bayard.
No. 106.]

Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your No. 55, under date of November 28 last.

Since 1827 there have been no discriminating duties charged in Norwegian ports on vessels arriving from ports of any country. The rates since that period on all vessels, except as stated in my No. 101 as to small fishing vessels from the White and Arctic Seas, has been uniform, no geographical distinction being made.

I have, etc.

Rufus Magee.
