Description:

Three documents comprising five leaves, ink manuscripts in various hands, plus partially printed cover. Various sizes, 31.5x22.5 cm (12½x8¾") or smaller, stitched together.

The two slaves, Dionisio and Juana, are apparently not on the slavery census and if such is the case they are to be given their "cedula de libre" (ID of a free person). However, it is noted by the Protectora de Libertos that both Dionisio, 26, and Juana, 13, are found in registries.
