Syllabus

Where a grant of land in California describes it by name and boundaries, and then states that the land of which donation is made is one league in length and three-quarters of a league in breadth, a little more or less, as shown by the map which goes with the expediente, with the usual reservations of the sobrante or overplus to the use of the nation, the grant will be confirmed to the extent of one league in length and three-quarters of a league in breadth, without extending it to the boundaries mentioned.

All the title papers are set forth in the opinion of the Court.
