May 6, 1870 16 376 Resolution extending the time for completion of first twenty miles of road. * 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.

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.
