or agent, or other authorised person, must endorse the Bill of Health,
with a declaration as to the sanitary condition of the port.1

In times of complete freedom from plague, when the fact of such
freedom is announced in the publications of the Swedish
Government, all vessels, from whatever country they may come—with the
exception of Morocco, Tunis, Algiers, Egypt and other countries in
the Mediterranean or Black Seas that are under Turkish rule—are at
liberty, if the same permission is accorded to vessels proceeding to
ports in Sweden, to proceed directly to Russian ports in the Baltic,
or to ports in Finland, where they are admitted without detention.
Vessels arriving from the countries specially excepted above, or such
as may have called at the ports of such countries while on the voyage,
are not permitted to enter Russian Baltic ports or to moor in Finnish
waters unless they produce the Bill of Health described above or
observe the quarantine formalities at Kenso, as prescribed by Swedish
law for vessels proceeding to Swedish ports. In the latter case they
must produce a certificate from the quarantine authorities as to their
satisfactory sanitary condition.2

In times of plague, or when there is a suspicion of the existence
of plague, and when, by the publications of the Swedish Government,
certain localities are declared to be infected or doubtful, all vessels
proceeding from such localities or ports are required to enter the
Swedish quarantine station at Kenso (Cattegat), to undergo the
examination prescribed by the quarantine regulations, and obtain a
clean certificate of health from the quarantine authorities, without
which they will not be permitted to enter a Russian port.3

Consuls are invited to inform the captains of vessels proceeding
to Russian Baltic ports that they can obtain information from all
Russian Consular Officers at seaports situated on the shores of the
German Ocean and the English Channel, i.e., London and the ports
on the south-east coast of Great Britain and the French, Dutch,
German, and Danish ports, as to all publications of the Swedish
Government relating to places which that Government has declared
to be infected with the plague or to be doubtful.4

Vessels sailing in times when plague is either known or suspected
to exist, from ports which the Swedish Government has pronounced
absolutely free from infection, are permitted, when provided with
clean Bills of Health, to proceed direct to their port of destination
in the Baltic, without calling at Kenso. They are, however, liable
to an enquiry, as to whether they have communicated with any vessel
while on the voyage from the port where their Bill of Health was
attested, to their port of destination. If, on enquiry, it appear that
the vessel has had no such communication on the voyage, she is
permitted to enter the port without delay. In the opposite case the
vessel may be prohibited from communicating with the shore for
