NOTE: the document from which I typed this page is a photocopy of a handwritten document. This document has squiggly marks around the word "Seal" for the seals. It is written in old script. It does not state who did the transcription. Thanks to Ernie Dawson for the papers.

Notice the spelling Schlappa for Schlapia. I have no way of knowing whether this was written this way in the original document or was an error by the transcriber. Jim Robinson
