A concession by the governor of East Florida made before the Florida treaty in consideration of services confirmed.
In the Superior court of East Florida, Fernando de la Maza Arredondo filed a petition praying a confirmation of a concession made to him, in consideration of services, by Don Jose Coppinger on 24 March, 1817, he being then Governor of East Florida, a dependency at that time of the Crown of Spain.
The court confirmed the concession, and the United States prosecuted this appeal.
