    Dear Karen Baston,

    I am a university student in Budapest, Hungary.

    I recently read your article concerning the lecture “Possession, Prescription and Uncertain Land Titles in Louisiana: 1808-1825”, which states that “The case of Foster & Elam v Neilson (1829) was only the first of seventy-cases over the next thirty years” and Professor Lovett “found twenty-five court decisions in which the court filled in gaps in the law”. http://www.elhblog.law.ed.ac.uk/2011/05/23/louisiana-the-legal-history-of-europe-in-a-single-us-state/

    The article only cites one case and I would be interested in all of them. Would you be so kind as to send me the rest?

    Thank you.
