Additional Details

Notes kept by an anonymous seminary student, partially from lectures by Felipe de Lescano. The notes are in an exceptionally small hand to conserve paper, and include a diagram of the solar system. On leaf 22 is a note reading "Me cago en el chuto," which in today's slang would mean "I shit on the Indians."
