The Secretary of State to the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Norway.


With regard to your telegram of October 29 informing me of the selection or Mr. Christian Hauge as chargé d’affaires of Norway, I beg to suggest that his reception in that capacity would be facilitated by the simultaneous delivery of letters recalling, so far as Norway is concerned, the present envoy whom this government has received in the dual capacity of representative of Norway as well as of Sweden. This government is without any official information that the minister’s representation of Norway has been changed.

Elihu Root.
