Where a title to land in the State of Coahuila and Texas was obtained in 1833 by a mother for and in the name of her daughter, and, in 1836, the father of the daughter conveyed it away by a deed executed in Louisiana, this deed was properly set aside by the District Court of Texas.

It was not executed either according to the laws of Louisiana, or those of Coahuila and Texas.
