U.S. Supreme Court

Buchanan v. Alexander, 45 U.S. 4 How. 20 20 (1846)

Buchanan v. Alexander

45 U.S. (4 How.) 20*

ERROR TO THE CIRCUIT SUPERIOR COURT FOR

THE COUNTY OF NORFOLK, STATE OF VIRGINIA

Syllabus

Money in the hands of a purser, although it may be due to seamen, is not liable to an attachment by the creditors of those seamen.

A purser cannot be distinguished from any other disbursing agent of the government, and the rule is general that so long as money remains in the hands of a disbursing officer, it is as much the money of the United States as if it had not been drawn from the Treasury.
