/424r/ my word that I gave him/her that when I would die I would give him/her something, I cancel it; it will count as nothing. Only the one I have now made before witnesses is to be carried out and executed. If it should appear sometime before the authorities, this is my testament that with my fully voluntary will I issued today, Tuesday the 9th of October of the year 1607. Because she is not acquainted with documents and cannot write, I Mateo de los Angeles with my own hand am setting down her signature and name:
+ María Ximénez
Here are recorded the names of these witnesses, all those in whose presence the testament was issued. The first is named Joaquín Gómez, the second Juan Huitznahuatl, the third Toribio de Morales, the fourth Diego Jiménez of the tlaxilacalli of Texihuacan. To verify it, here they sign their names, set down by their own hands:
Huaxtla: Toribio de Morales.
Tecpantzinco: Juan Huitznahuatl.
Before me, Baltasar Tetlacatl.
Before me, Mateo de los Angeles, notary.
