A United States law to provide financial relief for the purchasers of Public Lands. It permitted the earlier buyers, that couldn't pay completely for the land, to return the land back to the government. This granted them a credit towards the debt they had on land.

Still while being in economic panic and the shortage of currency made by citizens, the government hoped that with the time extension, the economy would improve.
