In consular practice the question often arises as to whether Bills
of Health are obligatory for all vessels sailing from abroad to Russian
ports. An official letter from the Section for Commercial Shipping,
of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, dated the 23rd June 1904,
No. 2499, to the Consulate at Newcastle-upon-Tyne, contained the
following explanations on this head :—

" According to Art. 854, Note 3, and § 16 of the annex to that
" Article,2 Bills of Health are obligatory for all vessels arriving at
" ports in the Black and Caspian Seas, from whatever ports they
" have come."

" In the Baltic Sea, the production of Bills of Health is only
" obligatory for ships arriving from Egypt or other Turkish provinces
" of the Mediterranean or Black Sea.3 Ships arriving from countries
" which are absolutely free from plague or epidemic disease, and
" which are acknowledged as being so by the Swedish Government,
" are at liberty, if the Swedish Qovernment extends the same right
" to ships bound from the same countries for Swedish ports, to
pro-" ceed to the Baltic ports of the Russian Empire, and are there
" admitted without detention.4 Vessels arriving at Russian Baltic
