Sept. 23 1801. after a full and careful
consideration of the proposals received

men's, etc., submitted ia ill tease, the
department decided to acquire titla to

certain conditions, advised the attorney
general thereof, and requested him to
taKe tne new s-tary actios to cause pro

Thentxt character represented bp this
