Submitted January 10, 1890
Decided March 3, 1890
133 U.S. 697
APPEAL FROM THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED
STATES FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
The refusal of a circuit court to grant a rehearing is not subject to review here.
S., by an assignment absolute in form and for an expressed sum and "other valuable considerations," assigned to G. an interest in letters patent. G., by a writing executed the following day, made a further agreement with S. as to times and modes and amounts of payments, and further agreed that if he should fail to carry out his said agreements, the title
was to revert to S.. Held that the transfer was absolute, subject to be defeated by failure to perform the condition subsequent.
