Agreements, Book A, p. 54.

NOTE: Did Horace Hawes own 1/10th of the Quien Sabe that he bought from William Carey Jones (which could have actually been 1/20th of the combined Santa Ana y Quien Sabe); and this new 1/10th of Manuel Larios’ Santa Ana (which was also still a part of the combined ranch?)? If so, then he owned 1/10th of the combined Santa Ana y Quien Sabe ranch.
