On April 1, 1917, Rear Admiral H. S. Knapp, Military Governor of the Dominican Republic, addressed to the Director of the United States Geological Survey a request for an estimate of the cost of a complete mensuration survey of the Republic and of supplemental mineralogical and botanical investigations. The estimates requested were furnished to Admiral Knapp, and after further correspondence it was agreed that the direction of a topographic and geologic survey of the Republic should be undertaken by the United States Geological Survey, the expense of the work, except that of certain office and laboratory investigations, to be borne by the Dominican Government.
