Rough translation done amongst the staff. Written by Galvez as the Spanish military commander that harried British forces in the Deep South and the Caribbean to Perinas as a lieutenant colonel in the Spanish forces. Quick note that says that after Captain Gilberto Guillemard reestablishes himself and arrives at the plaza, he will have permission and assistance to do whatever is necessary. There is discoloration on the paper where a paperclip was used.
After Capn D.n Gilberto Guillemard has reestablished himself and solicits to come to this Plaza, he will be conceded permission, aiding him in whatever it is that is necessaryâ€¦
