Peticion de los Habitantes

Del presinto de Tenehaw

Petition of the Inhabitants of

Teneha to have an Ayuntamiento.

 

 

Received from YNGHA/Karen Mazock.  This copy was so light that it was barely legible.  I spent hours penciling the letters in and reading the copy over and over again to get a clue of what the next word might be.  Spelling of names are as close as possible that I could read, but some remained completely illegible.
