§ Sir J. SIMON
A military committee took possession of the Government on the 24th June and, on their invitation, the King has accepted a Constitution, which was proclaimed and entered into force on the 27th June. I have not yet received full details of this Constitution. I am informed that this change took place without any public disorder, that martial law was not declared and that business, both public and private, has been proceeding normally. I have received an official assurance that all treaty obligations will be observed by the new Government and that the life and property of all foreigners will be scrupulously protected as heretofore.
