Clements v. Macheboeuf, 92 U.S. 418 (1875)
Clements v. Macheboeuf
92 U.S. 418
1. Where a party, holding a patent from the United States for certain lands, authorized, by a power of attorney, his agent "to act upon the application and demand of any person actually owning "town lots in Denver City, within the limits of the lands, and to execute and deliver deeds to such persons who "may apply for the same within three months from" a certain date, held that the "application and demand" must be made within that time, but the authority of the agent to adjudicate the claims was not so limited.
2. Where a party alleges that a deed executed by his attorney, under a power to convey, is invalid for matters not apparent on its face, the burden of proving them is on such party.
