By referring to statutes 1857, p. 222, it will be observed that the northern boundary of San Mateo runs east along township line to the eastern boundary of the County of San Francisco, as established by an Act entitled " An Act dividing the State into counties, etc.," passed April 25th, 1851 (p. 174). Now, the eastern boundary of San Francisco of 1851 does not coincide at that point with the present boundary. For the sake of uniformity, and in order to avoid a jog in the western boundary of Alameda, the San Mateo boundary line is made to conform to the present San Francisco and Alameda lines, as is shown on a map prepared by G. F. Allardt, Esq., Chief Engineer of the Tide Land Survey, now on file in office of the Surveyor General.-See note to Sec. 3953, post.
