    Confusion with referents.

    6. Is Antonio "unknown"? Better to say "... to court in Antonio's defense, unknown to their husbands."

    7. Do the two "him"'s refer to the same person?

    9. Were all three betrayed?

    10. Rather than "in which," use "which". For example,"... document, which indicated that she.... letter for Antonio, which stated that three...."
