Presidential Proclamamtion - February 17, 1890

September 19, 1890
To whom it may concern:

    WHEREAS,   It has been represented to me that, by reason of the drouth which has prevailed in the Indian Territory and the adjoining states, the execution of my proclamation of February 17th, 1890, requiring the removal of all live stock from the Cherokee Outlet on or before October 1st, would work a great hardship and loss not only to the owners of the stock herded upon the Strip, but upon the owners of cattle in the adjoining states, and
    WHEREAS,   The owners of all cattle now herded upon the Outlet have submitted to me a proposition in writing whereby they agree to remove one-half of their stock from the Outlet on or before November 1st, and the residue thereof and all their property and employees on or before December 1st next, and to abandon all claims in said Outlet:
    Now, therefore,   I, Benjamin Harrison, President of the United States, do give notice and proclaim that the time heretofore fixed for removal of the live stock herded upon said Outlet is extended to November 1st as to one half thereof, and to December 1st next as to the residue thereof and as to all property and employees.
