A confirmation of a claim to land in California under a grant from the former Mexican government, obtained under the Act of Congress of March 3, 1851, is limited by the extent of the claim made, and the decree of confirmation cannot be used to maintain the title to other land embraced within the boundaries of the grant.
Error to the Supreme Court of the State of California, the action being ejectment for lands in that state, on which judgment was rendered for the defendant in a district court of the state and affirmed by the Supreme Court.
