st: labeling overlaid histograms

I am trying to produce overlaid histograms in which each histogram is labeled (e.g., "foreign" or "domestic"). I have checked the graphics manual, and the online help, and am unable to find the solution.

. use "C:\Stata8\auto.dta", clear
.histogram weight if foreign==0, density blcolor(blue) bfcolor(none)

produces a single histogram labeled "Weight (lbs.)"

However, the following

. twoway (histogram weight if foreign==0, density blcolor(blue) bfcolor(none)) ///
(histogram weight if foreign==1, density blcolor(red) bfcolor(none))

produces two overlaid histograms, each labeled "density". How can I get the two histograms to be labeld "Domestic" and "Foreign", respectively?
