 ​

In the name of God almighty. Amen.

Be it known by this public instrument of testament and last

will, how I, Josef Curiel Barrado, resident of this

town of Garganta la Olla, being sick in my body,

and by divine Mercy in my perfect judgment,

membría, and natural understanding, believing,

as I firmly believe the mystery of the Holy Trinity, Father, Son

and Holy Spirit, three distinct persons, and only one

true God, and in all the rest, that contains, believes,

confesses, and teaches us our Holy Mother the Catholic

Apostolic Roman Church, under which faith, and belief

I have lived, and declare to live and die, as true

and faithful Christian, and fearful of death

and is natural to all living creatures, and its uncertain

hour, and for when this arrives, as my intercessor

and Advocate the Sovereign Queen of Angels

Mother of God, and of all sinners, to be

with her Only Begotten Son during that last moment

and end of my life, and to their honor and glory

and to their Holy Service, I make and require this my

testament in the following form and manner.---------

Firstly, I commend my soul to God our Lord,

who created and redeemed it with the infinite price of His

blood, and my body I commend to the earth, from which it was

formed, which body I desire be buried in the parish

church of this town, wherever there is room.----------

I require that three sung burial masses be said in my behalf.

I require that nine novena masses be said in my behalf

in three days; that the customary candles and tortas be given;

that four stops ​​
