Report of Hon. T. Butler King on California, 1850 (Classic Reprint)
There were no fee-bills to regulate costs: and, couse quently, the most cruel exactions, in many instances, were practiced.
The greatest confusion prevailed respecting titles to property, and the decision of suits involving the most important rights, and very large sums of money depend ed upon the dictum of the judge.
The sale of the Territory by Mexico to the United States had necessarily cut off or dissolved the laws regu lating the granting or procuring titles to land: and, as our own land-laws had not been extended over it, the people were compelled to receive such titles as were offered to them, without the means of ascertaining whe ther they were valid or not.
