claim to any territory west of the one hundredth
degree of west longitude, and, also, to make pro-
vision for the permanent settlement within the
Choctaw country, of the Wichita and certain
other tribes or bands of Indians, for which pur-
pose the Choctaws and Chickasaws are willing
to lease, on reasonable terms, to the United
States, that portion of their common territory
which is west of the ninety-eighth degree of
west longitude:
And, whereas, the Choctaws contend that,
by a just and fair construction of the treaty
of September 27, 1830, they are, of right, en-
titled to the net proceeds of the lands ceded
by them to the United States, under said treaty,
and have proposed that the question of their
right to the same, together with the whole sub-
ject matter of their unsettled claims, whether
national or individual, against the United States,
arising under the various provisions of said treaty,
shall be referred to the Senate of the United
States for final adjudication and adjustment: and,
whereas, it is necessary, for the simplification
and better understanding of the reltions between
the United States and the Choctaw Indians, that
all their subsisting treaty stipulations be em-
bodied in one comprehensive instrument:
Now, therefore, the. United States of America,
by their commissioner, George W. Manypenny;
the Choctaws, by their commissioners, Peter P.
Pitchlynn, Israel Folsom, Samuel Garland, and
Dickson W. Lewis; and the Chickasaws, by their
commissioners, Edmund Pickens and Sampson
Folsom, do hereby agree and stipulate as fol-
lows, viz:
ARTICLE 1. The following shall constitute and
remain the boundaries of the Choctaw and Chick-
asaw country, viz: Beginning at a point on the
Arkansas River, one hundred paces east of old
Fort Smith, where the western boundary line of
the State of Arkansas crosses the said river, and
running thence due south to Red River; thence
up Red River to the point where the meridian
of one hundred degrees west longitude crosses
the same; thence north along said meridian to
the main Canadian river; thence down said
river to its junction with the Arkansas river;
thence down said river to the place of beginning.
And pursuant to an act of Congress approved
