Francisco Pérez Carbajal

In August 1915 Eduardo Martínez wrote to the governor that in Sultepec, from Villa Allende to Almoloya (de Alquisiras), the casa of Francisco Pérez Carbajal held a monopoly in cereals, which it sold at double the price. It had hoarded all the small notes and cartones that were in circulation, leaving only the large notes. When someone offered a $5 note, they took it and did not give any change, but a vale so that the person had to shop for everything else there, at an extremely high price. These caciques were extorting the people, with the help of the presidente municipal, who was a shareholder in the casa comercial, and the Comandantes de la Plaza, who tolerated it as they were friendsAHEM, Serie Seguridad Pública, vol. 150, exp. 29 letter Eduardo Martínez, Sultepec, to Governor, 26 August 1915.
