Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the revision and adjustment of the sales of lands in the late reservation of the confederated Otoe and Missouria tribes of Indians in the States of Nebraska and Kansas, to which more than three-fourths of the adult male members of said tribes have given their consent, by an instrument in writing dated the twentieth day of November, eighteen hundred and ninety-nine, and now on file in the office of the Secretary of the Interior, is hereby approved and confirmed, and the Secretary of the Interior is hereby directed to carry the same into full force and effect as to all delinquent purchasers of said lands, their heirs and legal representatives, in the following manner, to wit: The Secretary of the Interior shall cause notice to be given to said purchasers, their heirs and legal representatives, respectively, of the amounts of the deferred payments found to be due and unpaid on their respective purchases under the adjustment hereby confirmed; and within one year thereafter it shall be the duty of such purchasers, their heirs and representatives, respectively, to make full payment in cash of the amounts thus found to be due by them, severally, and in default of such payment within said period of one year the entry of any purchaser so in default shall be forthwith canceled and the lands shall be resold for the benefit of the Indians at not less than the appraised value thereof, and in no case at less than two dollars and fifty cents per acre, as provided in the Act under which they were originally sold. Upon making such complete payment within the time so fixed each purchaser, his heirs or legal representatives, shall be entitled to receive a patent for the lands so purchased.
