The Swedish Minister to the Secretary of State.


Mr. Secretary of State: The dissolution of the union between Sweden and Norway being at present legally effected, His Majesty King Oscar II has changed his official title for that of “King of Sweden, of the Goths, and of the Vandals.”

I have the honor, by order of my government, to inform your excellency of this, and I take this occasion, etc.,

A. Grip.
