Svenskt travderby (''the Derby'', open for the best four year old horses), hosted in September at Jägersro in Malmö.

During these 25 years he wrote 14 works of a spiritual nature of which most were published during his lifetime. Throughout this period he was befriended by many people who regarded him as a kind and warm-hearted man. Many people disbelieved in his visions; based on what they had heard, they drew the conclusions that he had lost his mind or had a vivid imagination. But they refrained from ridiculing him in his presence. Those who talked with him understood that he was devoted to his beliefs. He never argued matters of religion, and if obliged to defend himself he usually did it with gentleness and in a few words. ''New Hampshire'' served as flagship for the special naval force in Haitian waters from 18 October-12 January 1921, and on 25 January sailed with the remains of Swedish Minister Wilhelm Ekerigren for Stockholm, arriving on 14 February. She called also at Kiel and Gravesend (Gravesend, Kent) before returning to Philadelphia on 24 March. There she decommissioned on 21 May. The most significant coup d'état of modern Swedish history had its beginning in Karlstad. The man behind the uprising was a liberal (Liberalism) nobleman and a prominent man of the opposition, the former officer Georg Adlersparre. He was backed up by the radical captain Henrik Anckarsword and used the part of the western army that was stationed in Värmland to occupy Karlstad on the night of the 7th March 1809. From there he officially proclaimed revolution, a proclamation which held the view that the wars and oppression had ruined the country and that the government therefore had to be overthrown. On 9 March, Adlersparre and his enthusiastic soldiers (many of Finnish origin) finally began their successful march towards Stockholm, and in the events that followed, the king Gustav IV Adolf (Gustav IV Adolf of Sweden) abdicated under pressure.
