Abstract:
A scrapbook commemorating the 1st Anniversary of the founding of a Jewish refugee settlement at Sousa, in the Dominican Republic, in January 1940. Included in this scrapbook are programs, invitations, dinner menus, newspaper clippings, photographs, and other material documenting the anniversary commemoration and its various festivities. Of special interest is a report written by James N. Rosenberg to the Dominican Government about the status of the settlement and a letter from Generalissimo Trujillo addressed to Rosenberg. There are also photographs (likely publicity shots) depicting daily life in the settlement.

Ciudad Trujillo, 3 de febrero de 1941.
Senfioria:
Es con verdadero placer que trasmito a
Vuestra Seforia los sentimientos de agradecimiento del Gobierno Dominicano por la atinada cooperaci6n que habeis venido prestando en vuestra calidad de Representante del Departamento de Estado Americano, en toda la labor realizada por el Gobierno Dominicano para el establecimiento de refugiados colonos en nuestro pais, y particularnmente por vuestra valiosa cooperaci6n en todos los actos que acaban de efectuarse en Uiudad Trujillo para conmemorar el primer aniversario de la firma del Contrato intervenido entre la Asociaci6n para el Establecimiento de Colonos en la Repd-blica, Inc.
El Gobierno Dominicano deplora que debido alas reglamentaciones vigentes en vuestro pais, os veais imposibilitado de aceptar la condecoraci6n de la Orden del *L7rito Juan Pablo Duarte, que como justiciero premio, tenia el prop6sito de otorgaros, galard6n 6ste que constituye el mas elevado honor y el mas distinguido mirito aue ofrece la RepDblica.
Uon sentimientos de mi mas distinguida consideracion,
