The undersigned, His Majesty's principal Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, has received His Majesty's commands to acquaint Mr. Monroe, that the King having been pleased, on the 16th of May last, to cause it to be signified that he had directed the necessary measures to be taken for the blockade of the coast, rivers, and ports, from the river Elbe to the port of Brest, both inclusive, His Majesty is now pleased to declare, that so much of such blockade as extended from the river Elbe to the river Ems, both inclusive, is for the present discontinued; and that, from the date hereof, the navigation of the coast, rivers, and ports, from the river Elbe to the river Ems, both inclusive, is as free as if such blockade had not taken place.

The undersigned requests Mr. Monroe to accept the assurances, &c.
