Scarce printing of the United States government's brief in the long-running lawsuit with Mexico over the disposition of the "Pious Fund." The fund was originally established as a charity for the continuation of Jesuit missionary work in California. The resolution of this lawsuit finally brought the issue, which began in the 1840s, to a close. This was the first case to be arbitrated by the Permanent Court of Arbitration at the Hague.
