Dear Major Lantoria, At last, I may say that I have tried my best to respond to the call in your severalletters received, which is about the preparation of the three (3) Decisions awaited byJudge Galicia. The delay is that I have been too much occupied with my cases andother professional commitments here in Manila and nearby provinces. Not only toMrs. Mascarinas I would say that I am so sorry but also to you. Mrs. Mascarinas hasbeen reminding me but I always find myself at a loss to prepare these Decisions atan early date sa (sic) possible. So also with my calendar as to the dates for the nexthearing of the remaining cases over there.Herewith now, you will find enclosed the three (3) Decisions against the (3) defaulteddefendants. I am not sure if they will suit to satisfy Judge Galicia to sign them atonce. However, it is my request to Judge Galicia, thru your kind mediation, that if thepreparation of these Decisions do not suit his consideration, then I am ready andwilling to accept his suggestions or correction to charge or modify them for the better. And to this effect, kindly relay at once what he is going to say or thinks if he signsthem readily and please request for each copy for our hold.xxx xxx xxxPlease excuse this delay, and thanks for your kind assistance in attending to our cases there.
