Re: Tagalog translation?

Hola Demetrio,
Unfortunately, Mirafuente did not give a reference for the Simon de Anda's proclamation... in a way it is similar to the Okinawan weapons ban... there are few citations for the actual document that proclaims the ban. In that time period however, there were at least two active revolts against the Spanish rule in the Philippines: 1) The Diego Silang revolt in Ilocos province and 2) the Juan de la Cruz Palaris revolt in the nearby province of Pangasinan. This, and the British occupation of Manila must have made for very trying times for Don Simon de Anda.

Best wishes,
