U.S. Supreme Court
Chorpenning v. United States, 94 U.S. 397 (1876)
Chorpenning v. United States
94 U.S. 397
From the repeal of the joint resolution of April 15, 1870, 16 Stat. 673, authorizing the Postmaster-General to adjust the accounts of George Chorpenning, and from the prohibition in the Act of March 3, 1871, id., 515, directing that no part of the money thereby appropriated for the use of the Post Office Department shall "be applied to the payment of what is known as the Chorpenning claim," the implication is clear that nothing more was to be paid to him on account of said claim without further authority from Congress.
