1. Sa mga Bayani ng Lungsod ng Maynila Marker
 
Inscription. In Tagalog:
Na nag-iwan sa amin ng isang dakilang pamana na may karangalan dahil sa ginawa nilang pagtulong sa mga kulang-palad na walang kakayahan, sa pagtatanggol ng mga naapi, sa pagsasanggalang ng patrimonyo ng lungsod at sa walang takot ninyong pagbubuwis ng buhay para sa isang banal at kagalang-galang na pamamaraan. Kaya kami sa ngayon ay binubuhay ang inyong kadakilaan sa pamamagitan ng panandang pangkasaysayang ito, isang buhay na alaala at sagisag ng aming walang-hanggang pagpapahalaga at paggalang sa inyong kabayanihan at pagkamakabayan.

Rough English translation:
They left a great legacy with dignity because they helped the hapless innocent, defended the offended, defended the city’s heritage and without fear to their life, in a holy and respectable manner. So now we have raised your greatness with this historical short-term, living memory and symbol of our eternal appreciation and respect for your patriotism and nationalism.
 
Erected 1993 by National Historical Institute.
