May 23, 1872! 17 ! 160 Act authorizing change of route in Michigan.
* In the adjustment of this grant the road was treated as an entirety, and without reference to the State line; hence Alabama has approved to her more and Mississippi less
land than they would appear to be entitled to in proportion to the length of road line in the respective States.

† No evidence of the construction of any part of these roads, as required by the acts, having been filed in the General Land Office, the grants are presumed to have lapsed,
but the lands have not been restored to the mass of public lands, Congress having taken no action to that end.

* Eighty miles constructed road before the grant lapsed.

$ Includes 35,685.49 acres of the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad; 109,756.85 acres of the Cedar Rapids and Missouri River Railroad; and 77,535.22 acres of the Dubuque and Sioux City Railroad, situated in the old Des Moines River grant of Angrist, 1846, which amounts are a loss to the roads by the decision of the United States Supreme Court in the case of the Dubuque and Pacific Railroad Company vs. Litchfield, 23 Howard, p. 66.
