The Acting Secretary of State to the Minister in the Dominican Republic (Russell)

41. Your despatch 635 of November 355 on boundary. In view of surveys in progress for Dominican and Haitian Governments by United States topographers and geologists, Department deems it practical to provide for eventual demarcation of boundary by a commission of American experts under supervision of United States Geological Survey. If agreeable to Dominican Government, provision should be made accordingly in Dominican reply to Mr. Magloire’s memorandum of August 2, 1920 and in proposed arbitration treaty.
