[Original in Spanish Contemporary copy P I R 981 5 ]
October 4, 1900.
To the Local Chiefs of Sogod, Kabalian, Anajauan, Hinundayan, and
Immediately upon the appearance in the town under your jurisdiction
of the traitor to the Mother Country, Severino Komandao, you will
secure his person and send him to these headquarters under the proper
guard; or if that person should come into the town followed by an
American force, you shall try to have him killed by treachery (traidoramente),
by "Dukut" (Assassination), for this is what a Filipino deserves
who does not know how to respect his own land and proceeds
to injure the beautiful ideal that we have in view.
Return the present communication, treating it as confidential.
Health and fraternity.
MANINGING, October 4, 1900.
The MILITARY COMMANDER:
The undersigned, Local Chief, notes the orders contained in the present
circular and will strictly comply therewith.
