Lyon v. Bertram
61 U.S. (20 How.) 149
Where there was a contract for the purchase of a cargo of flour and a portion of it was delivered, paid for, and used by the purchaser, he cannot repudiate the contract upon the ground that the brand upon the flour was not that for which he contracted.
The cases upon this point examined.

The laws of California require that actions shall be prosecuted in the name of the real party in interest and that all parties having an interest in the subject of the action may be joined. So that this statute is complied with, it is not a fatal objection that the respective interests of parties jointly concerned are not accurately set forth.
The facts are particularly stated in the opinion of the Court.
