Lots patented under the public land laws according to a plat showing them bordering on a lake extend to the water as a boundary and embrace pieces of land found between it and the meander line of the survey where the failure to include such pieces within the meander was not due to fraud or mistake, but was consistent with a reasonably accurate survey, considering the areas included and excluded, the difficulty of surveying them when the survey was made, and their value at that time. P. 260 U. S. 664.
