* In the adjustment of this grant, the road wa treated as an tirety, and without reference to the State line; nce, Alabama has approved to her more and lississippi 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.

Lands earned by the construction of eighty miles of road prior to June 3, 1866, 51,452.03 acres.
Lands within the limits of New Orleans, Baton Rouge and Shreveport Railroad grant of March 3, 1871, 227,879.94 acres.
Lands restored to market March, 1873, under the act of July 14, 1870, 439,861.82 acres.
