United States v. Gatesby
59 U.S. 92
Where an officer of the navy was detached on special duty in France, and a sum of money was transmitted to him by the Secretary of the Navy, to be disbursed for
medical attendance, the propriety of this act was peculiarly within the jurisdiction and discretion of the head of the department, and the officer cannot be charged with the amount so transmitted by the accounting officers of the Treasury Department.
The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court.
