WM. PINKNEY WHYTE, ESQUIRE, GOVERNOR. 311

CHAPTER 210.
AN ACT to settle and adjust the boundary line
between the States of Virginia and Maryland.
WHEREAS, The commissioners appointed by the
Act of the General Assembly of this State, at the
January session, eighteen hundred and sixty-eight,
chapter three hundred and seventy, have reported to
this General Assembly that they met a similar num-
ber of commissioners, appointed by the State of
Virginia, at Washington city, on the first day of
February, eighteen hundred and seventy-two, when
it was ascertained that the Virginia commissioners
were empowered to settle and adjust the boundary
line between the two States, and the commissioners
of this State were empowered to settle and adjust
the boundary line only upon the Eastern Shore of
the Chesapeake Bay, and that by reason of such dissimilar powers, no further proceedings could then
be had; and
WHEREAS, This State is desirous of a speedy and
amicable settlement and adjustment of all questions
of boundary between the two States which the State
of Virginia may desire to raise; therefore
SECTION7' 1. Be it enacted by the General Assembly of
Maryland, That the said commissioners, to wit: Isaac
D. Jones, Levin L. Waters, and William J. Aydelott,
be and they are hereby continued commissioners on
the part of this State, and they are hereby authorized
and empowered to meet the commissioners who are
appointed or may be appointed by the State of Vir-
ginia, and by compact, to settle and adjust the boun-
dary line between the two States, and in the event
of agreement, the compact of boundary to be re-
ported to the General Assembly of each of said
States for confirmation or rejection; and upon the
ratification of such compact of boundary by the
General Assembly of said States respectively, the
boundary line therein described, shall be fixed and
-established to remain forever, unless changed by the
mutual consent of the said States of Virginia and
Maryland.
