The Norwegian Chargé to the Secretary of State.

Sir: Having been recognized by your government as the chargé d’affaires ad interim of Norway, I have the honor to inform you, in view of the fact that the consular question is still pending, that I have directed all of the Swedish and Norwegian vice-consuls in this country to continue to act as vice-consuls of Norway until further notice.

Accept, etc.,

Ch. Hauge.
