Submitters Note: All spelling, abbreviation, capitalization, punctuation or lack thereof is contained in the original documents. The Latin phrase used in several instances above-Ven exp.or ips-could not be found. It is hard to decipher and I believe it was abbreviated as well, but the nearest I could come is as follows: Ven, is to come back. Exp.or, could be ex parte, something done by one party, or ex post, something done later. The last part looks like yrs or ips, could be ipso, meaning-itself.
