This is a supplement to German New Guinea, The Annual Reports published by ANU Press in 1978. The last of the Annual Reports included in that volume covered the financial year 1912-13. It was published in 1914. No further reports were published. Yet, in view of the fact that the next financial year (1913-14) had also ended before the outbreak of world war I, we had suspected for some time that a more or less advanced draft of the Re port covering that period must have been in existence . But had it survived? It was not among the files of the Imperial Government of German New Guinea in the Australian ( Commonwealth ) Archives. It seemed not unlikely, however, that by August 1914 a draft had been sent from Rabaul to the Colonial Office in Berlin . The Central Archives of the German Democratic Republic in Potsdam, which hold most of the surviving records of that Office, included the relevant series (manuscripts relating to the Annual Reports n New Guinea ) and there , in the last relevant file ( RKA 6538, Reel G 8610 in the National Library in Canbe rra ) was the 1913-14 draft.
