Spencer v. McDougal
Argued April 3, 1895
Decided June 3, 1895
159 U.S. 62
By the order of the Commissioner of the General Land Office of June 12, 1856, the land in controversy in this case was withdrawn from preemption or sale, and the validity of that order was not affected by the fact that the order covered more land than was included in the grant by Congress which caused its issue.
The case is stated in the opinion.
