he was denying now and in the confession given before the Judge-Advocate what was written before the Commander being as he knows and understands French fine and that Don Fernando Reodriguez, Don Francisco Alain, Don Augustin Alain, Don Simon Croiset, Don Alejandro Leblan with other whites and the Black of the Mina Nation named Rigodon slave of the said Commander were there? he said that it is true that the said Don Fernando Rodriguez was there, who was writing and the said Commander was also writing but that those mentioned were not there but his master was and that the reason he now understands and speaks French is because for about a year now he had been in Prison and working with the French and with them he had advanced and so he confirms that he did not say what was written by the Commander of Punta
