The real villain of the story appears:
Ramona Epic #25: Enter Jim Farrar (Vimeo Version)
The character of Ysidro is a cousin of Alessandro. As seen in the video, he did have a paper for his property, but that was signed under Mexican rule and the current U.S. paperwork needed is what Farrar had. You get the idea of the type of personality Farrar has with this video.
