You'll several rules in the "Using Primary Sources" section of this article.
1. Time and place
4. Personalities and roles (be able to identify every person mentioned in the document and his/her role)
5. Meaning and Purpose of the source/document
6. Content (be sure you understand all words and phrases, especially those that might have meant something different for the author)
7. Allusions (events, etc. the author takes for granted the audience will understand)
8. Assumptions and/or Bias
I got this off from the internet, so I'm not sure if this is what you're really looking for. I know there are more than three, but still, I hope they help!
