Title: Letter and reports regarding the municipal government's administration and the court, with a petition for a lenient trial in the case of Jose Antonio Valdez, a soldier who escaped from the Goliad prison, April 18, 23 & 25, 1835
Translator: Gauthereau-Bryson, Lorena
Description: Three separate letters written on a single leaf of paper. One side contains two separate statements concerning city government and court expenses. On the reverse is a plea for leniency on behalf of José Antonio Delahoz, a soldier who escaped from Goliad Prison, and took refuge in the Parish Church. Asks the authorities to keep in mind that “he was seeking divine protection and for that reason… [begs and asks] for lenience in the sentence, and gentleness in law that judges him.” 2 pp.
