University of Minnesota, Geological and Natural History Survey of the State of Minnesota
The whole of the State Salt Spring Lands have been appropriated by the Legislature to the prosecution of the Geological and Natural History Survey of the State of Minnesota, under the direction of the Board of regents of the State University. Upon investigating the condition of these lands, it has been ascertained that there is a large deficit in the amount granted by the General Government. This deficit arises from no fault of the State, or of its officers. The following history is sufficient to show that every step required by the terms of the grant was carefully taken. It is presented to the Board of Regents for their information, and for the purpose of calling the attention of the proper officers to the necessity of taking such measures as will secure to the work for which these lands have been set aside, the whole of the original grant.
