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.
