An act extending the time within which homestead entries upon certain lands in Michigan may be made.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That section one of an act entitled “An act to amend an act entitled ‘An act for the restoration to market of certain lands in Michigan,’ approved June tenth, eighteen hundred and and seventy-two,” approved March third, eighteen hundred and seventy five, be, and hereby is, amended so as to read as follows:

That the act approved June tenth, eighteen hundred and seventy-two, entitled “An act for the restoration to market of certain lands in Michigan,” be, and is hereby, amended so as to authorize the Secretary of the Interior to cause patents to be issued to three hundred and twenty members of the Ottawas and Chippewas of Michigan for the selections found to have been made by them, but which were not, prior to the passage of said act, regularly reported and recognized by the Secretary of the Interior and Commissioner of Indian Affairs; and the remainder of said lands not disposed of, and not valuable mainly for pine timber, shall be subject to entry under the homestead laws.
