DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR,
     Washington, D.C., April 6, 1927.

The PRESIDENT,
     The White House.

MY DEAR MR. PRESIDENT: The Shoalwater Indian Reservation, Washington, embracing 334.75 acres, was established by Executive order of September 22, 1866, for the use of some 30 or 40 families of Indians residing at Shoalwater Bay. Most of these families have severed all connection with the reservation, and a large number have received full tribal rights and benefits on other reservations. There are now three families living on the reservation, the members of which have received allotments on the Quinaielt Reservation with the exception of four children.

It is proposed to allot the land in suitable areas to these chidren and to any other Indians entitled to allotment on the reservation in accordance with the act of February 8, 1887 (24 Stat. 388), as amended, reserving a suitable area for cemetery purposes to be used by the Indians in common. Inasmuch as presidential authority is required for the purpose, it is recommended that you attach your approval to this letter as our permission to have the work done.

     Very truly yours,

(Sgd.) E.C. FINNEY,
Acting Secretary.

THE WHITE HOUSE, April 6, 1927.
Approved:

(Sgd.) CALVIN COOLIDGE.
