"From the organization of the State government of California, the city of San Francisco has contended that there was a pueblo, or town, under the Mexican Government, at the site of the present city, on the acquisition of the country, that such pueblo owned the land within the limits of 4 square leagues, to be measured otf from the northern portion of the peninsula upon which the city is situate: and that the city succeeded to this interest. The city, in 1852, presented her claim for the 4 square leagues to the board of land commissioners, created under the act of Congress of March 3, 1851, for the settlement of private land claims in California, and asked its confirmation. The United States contested this claim, denying the title of the city, but did not make any claim of reserves, nor of any right to make reserves." [41st Congress, 2nd Session, Senate Report No. 30.].
