As far back as 1769 the newly appointed Commander in Chief at Port Royal Jamaica, Commodore Arthur Forrest, had written to Gauld with regard to his surveying.  Both men had known each other from 1760 when Gauld had started a naval career as a teacher of Mathematics aboard Forrest's ship H. M. S. Centaur.  Forrest was now writing to Gauld with regard to the Florida keys and the desirability of improving a better knowledge of the Dry Tortugas in particular. "If a good Harbor could be found there, it would be a great service" he wrote.  Forest stopped short of commanding Gauld to undertake this work but chose instead to enquire as to what Gauld had been doing.  Gauld, at the end of January 1770 dispatched his latest work to Forrest.
