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, ('ongress 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.
