Origin
A traveling document for Chrisanthe Calas. The document is in Greek on one side and French on the other but both sections say the same thing. At the top it says In the Name of the Governement of of the Republic of Greece. Underneath the document reads (in essence), that "we" require all officers, civil and military... Hellenic Republic and let "us" request friendly countries to let us pass freely. Give way, Ms. Chrisanthe N. Malocopaiki, to.... Without being bother by anyone and lend assistance and protection where necessary. And for this reason we delivered the present, signed by us. The Present is signed by an official of Athens on the 13th of February. The document describes Chrisanthe as 24 years of age, average height and scribbled something for "eyes" and "nose" but left the "hair" section blank. Under her town and residence they wrote Crete.
