This bill was favorably reported by the Committee on Indian Affairs in the Forty-ninth Congress.
The claim against the Cherokees which it recognizes was investigated by the Commissioner of Indian Affairs, was found by him to be just, and his finding and report thereon approved by Secretary Lamar.
The message of the President, the letters of the Secretary of the Interior and Commissioner of Indian Affairs, together with accompanying agreements and petitions, are appended to this report.
