No. 37, Headquarters of the Army, A. G.

Commencing at a point 3,861 feet south 2° 30′ east of the flagstaff of Fort Washakie, Wyo., and running thence north 75° 30′ east, 11,890 feet to corner II; thence north 26° 15′ west, 7,060 feet to corner III; thence south 83° 15′ west, 13,125 feet to corner IV; thence south 23° 00′ west, 6,435 feet to corner V; thence north 87° 45′ east, 3,234 feet to corner VI; thence south 61° 30′ east, 4,450 feet to corner I, the place of beginning. All bearings are true.


This modification is made subject to the proviso in said Executive order of May 21, 1887, that—

The use and occupancy of the land in question be subject to such right, title, and interest as the Indians have in and to the same, and that it be vacated whenever the interest of the Indians shall require it, upon notice to that effect to the Secretary of War.
