United States v. Sutherland

60 U.S. (19 How.) 363

Syllabus

That the Spanish grants of land in California were large is no reason why this Court should refuse to confirm them.

A grant of a tract of land known by the name of El Cahon, lying near the Mission of San Diego, and being that which the map attached to the official papers expresses, which map is of such a character that a surveyor could lay off the land, is good, and must be confirmed.

The case is stated in the opinion of the court.
