   the State boundary line between North Carolina and Virginia; thence in
   a straight line to a point on the Virginia-West Virginia boundary line
   located at north latitude 37°49' and west longitude 80°12'30''; thence
   westerly along the southern boundary lines of the States of West
   Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois to a point at the junction of the
   Illinois, Kentucky, and Missouri State boundary lines; thence northerly
   along the western boundary line of the State of Illinois to a point at
   the junction of the Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin State boundary lines;
   thence easterly along the northern State boundary line of Illinois to
   the 90th meridian; thence north along this meridian to the 43.5°
   parallel; thence east along this parallel to the United States-Canada
   border; thence southerly and following that border until it again
   intersects the 43.5° parallel; thence east along this parallel to the
   71st meridian; thence in a straight line to the intersection of the
   69th meridian and the 45th parallel; thence east along the 45th
