Translation provided by Dr. Jose Edwin Nieves, USCG Auxiliary who noted: "I am sending for your records, a translation of the Rules and Regulations Governing the Lighthouse Towermen in PR while under the Spanish. It was posted as a 'public notice' in 'La Gaceta de Puerto Rico' on 2 MAY 1882. I am enclosing the original posting. It is clear the R/R's continue on the next page but I was not able to find it.
