Francisco Olive y Garcia, Translated and Annotated by: Marjorie G. Driver(Author)
This report written by Governor Francisco Olive contains his insights about the social, political, and economic conditions of the Marianas. He focuses on the underdevelopment of the islands and draws the Spanish Government to look back at the colony’s history, specifically the second half of the 19th century. The report reflects the colonial mentality of Olive, who stresses the responsibility of the Spanish Government to the inhabitants of the Marianas, leaving unchallenged the right of Spain to maintain its sovereignty over the islands.

Antonio de Pineda y Ramirez was both a military officer and scientist for the Spanish crown, being most famous for his botanical research. Heading the scientific expedition under the auspices of King Carlos III, he sailed across the world collecting data in different countries, which eventually lead him to the Mariana Islands in 1792. After spending twelve days on Guam, he observed both the geological and zoological aspects of Fort Santo Angel, a small fortification at the entrance to Umatac Bay. Shortly after his departure from Guam, he passed away, leaving behind valuable scientific information about the island.
