Sebastian Oliveras denouncing as belonging to the King a lot which Don
Francisco Itiz del Canto possesses and soliciting its concession in order
to build on it.

Note: (The document is in very bad condition and it is almost illegible.)

Mr. Governor and Captain General, With attention to the antecedent Superior
Decree of Your Lordship, I must say: That it is true that by one side of
the lot of which we are dealing, East-W st, there is an alley (callej6n)
that they say they did not find it when we cami. What really is true is
that in the middle of that alley there are some orange trees which of
course, they show it as a lot. All of this, plus the dimensions registered
in the deed, especially the two, the one that faces of the com-
mander of Artillery Don Pedro Josef Salcedo, and the one of the rear, to
the Castillo. That this is what I am able to inform Your Lordship about
this particular thing. St. Augustine, Florida, October 30, 1788.
