I. Be it therefore enacted by the honorable the Senate and House of Representatives, now met and sitting in General Assembly, and by the authority of the same, That all such properly as has accrued to the said State in the parish aforesaid, since the passing of the said last mentioned Act, or which shall hereafter accrue to the said State in the parish aforesaid, by virtue of the said Act, shall be, and the same is hereby, vested in Joseph Palmer, Samuel Dubose, John Palmer, Francis Peyre, and Isaac Porcher, trustees of the said Pineville Academy, and their successors in office, for the use of the said Pineville Academy: Provided, That as soon as the said Academy shall have received from escheated property the amount of ten thousand dollars, this Act and every part thereof shall cease and determine: And provided also, That the right of the State to remit any escheat that may occur, shall not be impaired by this Act.
