ERROR TO THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE UNITED

STATES FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS

The decision in the preceding case of League v. Egery and others concludes this also.

MR. JUSTICE CAMPBELL delivered the opinion of the Court.

The plaintiff claimed in the district court two leagues and one-half of land in the County of Refugio, in the State of Texas, which were in the possession of the defendants. The defendant answered the claim by asserting title under grants from the State of Texas, and by the operation of the statutes of limitation.
