THE MISTER OF SUMALAO
I have lived in Sumalao for thirty years. With my family we take care of the chapel of the Mr. of Sumalao.
They say that it has existed our here more than for one century Mr.. That some muleteers have brought it to the Mr. to mule loin. He came dedicated for the Peru. I don't know of where came. That a little more the chapel had been to the south. And there the square of the was Mr. of Sumalao. And that later this better iglesita has been made, and if it has put the square. The other one, the old lady, is no longer.
And then that the muleteers have come and they have made night in this place, in Sumalao. And on the following day that they have made the loads and they have wanted to follow trip. And that the mules have continued. Then, clear, the mule that came with the square was thrown to the floor that they gave him when walking to lashes. And that didn't want, to follow the animal. And that finally has continued, but that when they have wanted to see, in a negligence, he has become. And the muleteers have looked for it and they have found it here. And then of seeing that the animal wanted to stay here, they have left it. And they have already seen that the Providence of our Mr. it was of staying. You already go, in this place so sad, so solitary that it is not town that is a town nothing else. They say that it was the property of a certain Mister Ortiz. They say that he has donated the land, as a triangle, for the church.
They say that the square called him Mr. of Vilques, but I don't know where that is.
There is a Commission in it Jumps that works for the cult of the Mr. of Sumalao. The President is the one that more battle for Him.
