Track 1: a) Sebastian Espinola Palam (592) (971) gives the Spanish
equivalents for the Tzotzil tokens. (Date: 7/14/61)
b) Male consultant (from Convento) who gives his name only as
"Chico", gives Spanish tokens for the Tzotzil. [No date]
[Two short passages intervene here, where Diaz de Salas (?)
urges a small child to sing a song.]
c) Sebastian Ramírez Palam (594), who is identified on the box
as "Sebastian Ramirez Wak", does the same. (Date is given
as 7/13/61.)
Track 2: a) Miguel Martinez Huac ["Wak" on box] (578) gives the Tzotzil

Notes Tape is probably a copy of the live recordings, made on a Webcor tape recorder. The number originally given to this tape is "S9" ["S"=Sarles?]. Note: The order of the "sides" may be reversed; i.e., Track 1 is really 2, and vice versa. Some consultants have been given two code numbers apparently in order to distinguish them as speakers of Tzotzil and as speakers of Spanish. JJT has just assumed that the two interviewers are Diaz de Salas and Sarles.
