No. 55.]

Sir: Referring to my two dispatches Nos. 52 and 53, and to my telegram of the 8th instant concerning the removal of the prohibition of the importation of American pork into Denmark, I have the honor to inclose herewith a translation of the decree of his excellency the minister of the interior by which the prohibition was removed.

[Inclosure in No. 55.—Translation.]

Decree touching the importation of pork and other unmanufactured swine products from the United States of North America.

The prohibition notified in the decree of the ministry of the interior of March 10, 1888, against the importation into this country from the United States of North America of pork and other unmanufactured swine products, including swine bladders and unpurified steam lard, is hereby withdrawn as regards those products which are furnished with certificates under the hands of the proper authorities to the effect that the article in question, before leaving the United States, has been subjected to an examination incompliance with the legislation in force in the States, and has been declared at such examination to be found untainted, sound, and fit for human food.

This decree takes effect at once.

To all whom it may concern.
