LUKBAN TO LOCAL PRESIDENTE OF KATIBUG, JUNE 5, 1900
[Original in Spanish. L . S. P . I. R . , 502.7 .]
JUNE 5, 1900.
Sr. LOCAL PRESIDENTE OF KATIBUG:
I send you a little of the poison known as "dita" that you may put
it on the points of the "balatik" and "sura" (spears and traps), admonishing
you to take care that none of our people arc wounded with
the said poison, and if by misfortune anyone is wounded, immediately
apply the stem of the "Badian" mixed with that of the "lingaton" in
the wound, as this is the most efficacious means of neutralizing and
removing the effect of said poison. Be active and place many of the
spears, etc., in all the roads and trails where the enemy must pass,
and as soon as you know of his next expedition, inform me immediately
by dispatch, both by day and night.
It is very necessary that the people detailed to place the poison on
the points carry always the "badian" and "lingaton" so that in case of
mishap some one may apply the remedy to neutralize the destructive
ingredients of the poison at once.
HEADQUARTERS OF MATUGUINAO, 5th of June, 1900.
(Signed) LUKBAN, General.
