Title:Charter and minutes : mss., 1879 May 20-August 1
Creator/Contributor:Spanish American Club, creator
Creator/Contributor:Pico, José Ramon.
Sixteen pages (incomplete from p. 185 to p. 210) containing minutes of the near weekly meetings, May 20 to Aug. 1, 1879. The
meeting minutes discuss actions by the New Constitution Party, and the club's plans. The text of a charter declaring the Spanish
American Club's support of the new California constitution can be found between the minutes of June 16 and June 25. The charter
concludes with an incomplete list of signatories and their occupations. The minutes also refer to Captain José Ramon Pico,
the apparant owner of the volume from which the leaves were removed. The volume served as a military register of Pico's Native
California Calvary (186-), and was later used as a scrapbook for late nineteenth century colored advertising cards.
