April 8, 1870.

Hon. Cornelius Cole,

U. S. Senate.

Sir:

I see no objection to the issuing of mandates in the following cases:

Francisco Higuera, et Secundino Higuera, claimants, vs. The United States Land Commissioner, No. 409; No. 131 in the District Court S. District of California—Rancho Rincon de los Bueyes.

And secondly:

Louis Rubideaux, appellant, vs., The United States, appellee, involving the title to land situated in the county of San Bernardino, California, lying between San Jacinto and San Gregorio bounded on the east by San Gregorio, and on the north by San Timotes and Yucaipa, and on the west by San Jacinto, containing one square league.

Very respectfully,

W. A. Field,

Assistant Attorney General.


Consenting to the issue of certain Sup. Court mandates in California cases.
