King Carlos III in a Decree of September io, 1772"; a "Speech
of Carlos Antonio Carrillo in the Mexican Chamber of Deputies,
Requesting Adequate Courts for the Administration of Justice
in Alta California, 1831"; the "Decree of President Santa Anna
of Mexico, May 22, 1834, Establishing Circuit Tribunals and

cree of the Spanish Cortes, of October g, 1812, concerning the
Constitutional Magistrates of the Towns" and "Articles of the
