REPORTS

OF

THE DECISIONS

IN THE

SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES.

FEBRUARY TERM, 1822.

[LOCAL LAW. CHANCERY.)

MILLER and Others v. KERR and Others,

A warrant and survey authorize the proprietor of them to demand the

legal title, but do not, in themselves, constitute a legal title: until the consummation of the title by a grant, the person who acquires ar

equity holds a right, subject to examination. Where the register of the land office of Virginia had, by mistake,

given a warrant for military services in the Continental line, on a certificate authorizing a warrant for services in the State line, and in recording it, pursued the certificate, and not the warrant, it was held that this Court could not support a prior entry and survey, on a war

rant thus issued by mistake, against a 'senior patent. Where the plaintiffs seek to set aside the legal title, because they have

the superior equity, it is consistent with the principles of the Court to rebut this equity by any circumstances which may impair it: and the legal title cannot be made to yield to an equity founded on the mistake of a ministerial officer.

This cause was argued and determined at the last term, but omitted to be reported.
