Chargé Lorillard to the Secretary of State.

No. 46.]

Sir: I have the honor to inform the Department that a treaty of arbitration between Denmark and Great Britain was signed on the 25th ultimo at the foreign office in London, by Baron Bille, the Danish minister to Great Britain, and the Marquess of Lansdowne.

It is impossible to secure a copy of this treaty here, but I have been informed by a prominent official of the ministry of foreign affairs here that its terms are identical with those of a like treaty between Great Britain and France, signed October 14, 1903.a

I have, etc.,

George L. Lorillard.
