SIRS:

We have the honor to submit herewith our printed joint report upon the reestablishment of the section of the International Boundary between the United States and Canada from the Gulf of Georgia to the Northwesternmost Point of Lake of the Woods, together with an atlas of fifty-nine signed joint maps of the boundary as now reestablished, in accordance with the provisions of Articles VI and VII of the treaty between the United States and Great Britain signed at Washington April 11, 1908, and of Articles I, II, and IV of the treaty between the United States and His Britannic Majesty in respect of Canada signed at Washington February 24, 1925.

This report is the sixth of a series of seven final reports being prepared by the Commissioners on the survey and demarcation of the several sections of the International Boundary Line between the United States and Canada and Alaska and Canada in accordance with the provisions of existent boundary treaties. The seven reports, together with their accompanying maps, will cover the entire boundary between the United States and Canada and between Alaska and Canada, with the exception of that part of the boundary, through the St. Lawrence River and the Great Lakes, which was reestablished and reported upon by the International Waterways Commission, under the special provisions of Article IV of the treaty of April 11, 1908.

The signed originals of the report and the originals of each of the fifty-nine boundary maps have been prepared in quadruplicate and two of the original reports and two sets of the original maps, bound in atlas form, are transmitted herewith to each Government.
