Ballance v. Papin
60 U.S. (19 How.) 342
Under the circumstances described in the preceding case, if there was no sufficient evidence of a survey under the act of 1823, the title claimed under that act could not be held superior to that claimed under a patent issued in the interval between the act of 1823 and the alleged survey.
This case was similar in most of its features to the preceding case.
