On consideration of the report of the commissioners, heretofore selected to run, locate, and mark portions of the boundary between the states of Texas and Oklahoma along the south bank of the Red river, showing that they have run, located, and marked the portion of such boundary along the Fort Augur Area—such report being as follows:

2

Second Report of the Boundary Commissioners.

3

To the Chief Justice and the Associate Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States:

4

Continuing our work as commissioners designated in the decree of March 12, 1923 (261 U. S. 340, 43 S. Ct. 376, 67 L. Ed. 687), in the above-entitled cause, we have run, located, and marked upon the ground the boundary between the states of Texas and Oklahoma along the Red river from the Big Bend Area westward to a southerly extension of the west line of range 16 west in Oklahoma, in accordance with the decree and the principles announced in the opinion delivered January 15, 1923 (260 U. S. 606, 43 S. Ct. 221, 67 L. Ed. 428), and in the manner stated in our report of April 25, 1924, on the Big Bend Area. We have called this portion of the boundary the 'Fort Augur Area.'

5

The maps, which accompany and are made a part of this report, are identified as follows:

6

Map No. 4. Cadastral map of the Texas and Oklahoma boundary, Fort Augur Area, scale 2,000 feet to the inch;

7

Map No. 5. Topographic map of Texas and Oklahoma boundary, Fort Augur Area, in four sheets, Nos. 1, 2, 3 and 4, scale 500 feet to the inch, contour interval 2 feet; and a Road Map. Showing location of reference monuments, scale one mile to the inch.1

8

There are no oil wells within 300 feet of the boundary in the Fort Augur Area.

9

The survey of this area was begun June 13, 1923, and completed October 10, 1924, the triangulation being done in 1923, and the other work being done after June 1, 1924.

10

The location of the boundary, reported herein, is that position which existed on September 3, 1924.

11

The field notes of the boundary survey and tabulations of technical data follow:
