An act for the relief of John B. Brown.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the Court of Claims be, and the same is hereby, authorized and directed to entertain jurisdiction in the Indian depredation claims numbered forty-nine hundred and ninety-seven and eighty-six hundred and thirty-nine, field in the Court of Claims during the terms of eighteen hundred and ninety and eighteen hundred and ninety-one and during the November term, eighteen hundred and ninety-two, without reference to the citizenship of John B. Brown, of San Antonio, Texas, now decreased, who originally filed said claims; and for the pruposes of said action, based on said claims, said John B. Brown shall be assumed to have been a citizen of the United States at the date of said Indian depredations; the proof of loss and evidence in the case having been printed by the order of the court to which reference is made, which proof shows there is nothing wanting to give the Court of Claims jurisdiction except the question of citizenship.

Approved, February 9, 1907.
