IDAHO


To the PRESIDENT:

SIR: Upon recommendation of the post commander, concurred in by the
commanding general, Department of the Missouri, and the lieutenant-general,
I have the honor to request that the following-described tract of land in
the Indian Territory, located within the limits of the Cheyenne and Arapaho
Indian Reservation, created by Executive order dated August 10, 1869, be
duly declared and set apart by the Executive as a military reservation for
the post of Fort Reno, viz:

Beginning at the northwest corner of section 28, township 13 north, range 8
west of the Indian meridian, and running thence east to North Fork of the
Canadian River; thence down this stream to the range line between ranges 7
and 8 west of the Indian meridian; thence south on said range line to the
southeast corner of section 36, township 13 north, range 8 west of the
Indian meridian; thence east to the northeast corner of township 12 north,
range 8 west of the Indian meridian; thence south to the southeast corner
of section 12 of said township; thence west to the southwest corner of
section 9 of said township; thence north to the northwest corner of section
4 of said township; thence west to the southwest corner of section 33,
township 13 north, range 8 west of the Indian meridian; thence north to the
point of beginning, containing an area of about 14 5/6 square miles, or
9,493 acres.

A sketch showing the proposed reservation is inclosed herewith, and the
Interior Department reports that there is no objection on the part of the
Indian Office to the setting apart for military purposes exclusively of the
tract of land herein described.

I have the honor to be, sir, with great respect, etc.,

ROBERT T. LINCOLN, Secretary of War.
