Background
This file contains a collection of original letters,manuscripts, and correspondince collected by an unknown person. the bulk of the collection focuses on pre-statehood California, early governors, missionaries and military officers. The original documents have glued on to larger sheaths of paper. This appears to have been done in the late 19th Century and the collector included their own personal notes handwritten onto the original documents. The original documents are very fragile and shoul dbe handled with extreme care. The hand writting is clear but somwhat hard to read as the ink has faded over time. The original documents are hand written in ink and are in Spanish. Autographs include Junipero Serra, Father Pedro Font, Father Francisco Padua, Father Jose de Aixiota, and Father Boscuna.
