[Anthony Ivins]

I went to Chalco today and after talking with the Judge secured Bro [Lino] Zarates release by paying a fine of $15.00 and promising that he would either provide bondsmen within 15 days or move away from Ozumba. [August 18, 1883: Saturday] This afternoon [Rafael] Martinez the man who had formerly came in from the state of Hidalgo with the letter from a Protestant congregation in that state returned ^and stated^ that six of the members of their congregation had been ar- rested and imprisoned on the charge of being connected with the society of the Black Hand. They were held two days and released on bonds. Bro. Martinez brought in a letter from the brethren which declared their intention to press forward.
