An act authorizing the issue of a patent to the Presbyterian Board of Home Missions for certain lands on the Omaha Indian reservation for school purposes.

Whereas the location of the old mission school on the Omaha Indian reservation, in the State of Nebraska, has become unsuitable for school purposes, and it being necessary to replace the buildings thereon by such as shall be more convenient and commodious, the Presbyterian Board of Home Missions propose to relinquish all claims to the land situate in section twelve, township twenty-five, range nine east of the sixth principal meridian, on said reservation, in the State of Nebraska, occupied for mission purposes for nearly forty years, to the United States, the same to become a part of the reservation wherein it is located; and

Whereas the Omaha Indians, in consideration of said relinquishment and the promise of said board to erect on a proposed new site a building, to be used for school purposes, of the value of seven thousand five hundred dollars, for the benefit of the children and youth of the Omahas,

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the President of the United States of America, upon the execution by the Presbyterian Board of Home Missions of a patent to the United States of the lands now occupied by them, as described in the first preamble herein, is hereby authorized and directed to issue to the Presbyterian Board of Home Missions a patent for the following-described land, to wit: the southwest quarter of northeast quarter and west half of southeast quarter and northeast quarter of southeast quarter of fractional section numbered twenty-nine, township twenty-five, range eight east of the sixth principal meridian, on the Omaha Indian reservation, in Thurston County, Nebraska, containing one hundred and sixty acres, more or less, to have and to hold the same, so long as the said Presbyterian Board of Home Missions shall use and occupy the premises for educational, charitable, and religious purposes, and no longer.
