Whereas, it appears that the public good will be promoted by adding certain lands in New Mexico to the Manzano National Forest;

Now, therefore, I, CALVIN COOLIDGE, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the power in me vested by the act of Congress approved March third, eighteen hundred and ninety-one (26 Stat., 1095), entitled, “An Act To repeal timber-culture laws, and for other purposes ”, and also by the act of Congress approved June fourth, eighteen and ninety-seven (30 Stat., 11 at 34 and 36), entitled, “An Act Making appropriations for sundry civil expenses of the Government for the fiscal year ending June thirtieth, eighteen hundred and ninety-eight, and for other purposes ”, do proclaim that the boundaries of the Manzano National Forest are hereby changed to include the areas indicated as additions upon the diagram hereto annexed and forming a part hereof.

The withdrawal made by this proclamation shall, as to all lands which are at this date legally appropriated under the public land laws, or embraced in a proper application to enter under the provisions of the stock raising homestead law, or reserved for any public purpose, be subject to, and shall not interfere with or defeat legal rights under such appropriation, nor prevent the designation of the lands embraced in such application and allowance thereof, nor the use for such public purpose of lands so reserved, so long as such claims are legally maintained or such reservation remains in force.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the City of Washington this 29th day of August, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and twenty-four, and of the Independence of the United States of America the one hundred and forty-ninth.
