The Department of State to the Legation of Sweden and Norway.


The Department of State has received the memorandum of the legation of Sweden and Norway, dated October 27, 1905, and takes note of the fact that the legation has received from the foreign office at Stockholm a telegram announcing that after the consent given by the Swedish Diet, the King had, on October 26, recognized Norway as entirely separated from Sweden and had renounced the crown of Norway for himself and his house.

The Department of State takes note also of the further information furnished by the legation of Sweden and Norway that a circular note to the powers is now on its way by mail, which will, in a more formal manner, bring the subject to the knowledge of the Government of the United States.
