File No. 763.72112/1902

The Minister in Norway ( Schmedeman ) to the Secretary of State


37. It has come to my knowledge that the British Government and the Norwegian American Line nave made another agreement (see my despatch No. 911), from which it would appear that the British Government waives the right of search on condition that it be put in possession of the ship’s manifests and that the line agree, upon being requested by the British Minister at Christiania, to return to England such goods destined for other countries as the British Government may desire.
