|Chap. 234||Joseph B. Tanner Reimbursement of.|
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the Secretary of the Treasury be, and he is hereby, authorized and directed to pay to Joseph B. Tanner, of Shiprock, New Mexico, out of any money in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated, the sum of $250, for reimbursement of the amount forfeited by him for nondelivery at the Navajo Springs Indian Agency, Colorado, of three hundred and eighty-five head of two-year-old heifers of Hereford blood, and fifteen bulls not less than three-fourths Hereford blood, two-year-olds and
three-year-olds, the sum in question having been deposited by him in the form of a certified check guaranteeing the performance of his contract to deliver these animals, which check was forfeited to the Government on account of his failure to make delivery under his agreement through a misunderstanding of the true meaning and intent of his contract as between the said Tanner and the inspecting official representing the Government.
