Lafarlade: I wish you are doing fine, I am recovering from my very serious
condition, I even thought I was not going to be able to write you again. Emilio:
In order to please General Garcia it is necessary that you tell him what you
have agreed with the Hasudados regarding the payment amounts that they will make
for the conservation of their bottles, because General Nudiso wishes to know
what they agreed and he wishes the Delegate Tomas Estrada Palma or Neuyar to do
it in order to avoid inconveniences. I also hope my dear friend that you write
to me and tell me what is what you have agreed so I as Chief of the Division can
inform General Garcia, because he ordered me to do so, but I couldn't replied due to my illness. Tell me what is the mood of
the owners of Yuguinos, if they are going to bother or not, and let's share that with Garcia as well because he gets really
happy with those news, try to see Brigadier Martinez because he will inform you
about the disembarkations and the plenty of arms that will be given to this
Division. If you want you can send me all your assignments with the messenger.
Without any other thing to discuss, your friend. P.A. Perez. P.S. I hope you
reply to me with urgency. Perez." Perico A
