Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to immediately authorize the conveyance of a certain parcel of land and easement and settlement of an action against the commonwealth, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.

in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same,
