The Philippines form the largest island group of the Malay Archipelago, and extend almost due north and south from Formosa to Borneo and the Moluccas, embracing an extent of 16° of latitude and 9° of longitude. They were ceded by Spain to the United States of America on 10 Dec., 1898 for $20 million; an additional payment of $100,000 was agreed upon on 7 Nov., 1900 for certain outlying islands not included in the first treaty of cession.
