Karpova: "The Times", 1921.12.20, p.13 (it's about the Women section of London 1922)
Jose Raul Capablanca: <I hope the commettee will also consider a proposition which I have to make with regard to the Women's Tournament, and that is that in some way they leave open the possibility of the participation in that tournament of the young Cuban girl, Senorita Maria Teresa Mora. The young lady is only some 17 years old, and yet I believe her to be the equal of any woman player. Her participation would also add enormous interest to the tournament and would cost the committee nothing, as I would obtain here the necessary funds for her journey.>
Mora didn't participate

She plays against Edward Everett who wrote in a letter dated 26 November 1916:
<‘Like many players, I too frequently appraise my opponent by appearances before the game. There was nothing about her to inspire fear. The señorita is a frail, intellectual, little lady with her hair in curls, and the long dress period several seasons away.
After the introduction I patronizingly inquired what odds she would be pleased to accept, and was amused at her declination of the proposal. However, my amusement was soon turned to apprehension when I found myself on the defensive, and to dread when I next realized that my game was lost. She won. Indeed, out of the seven games contested to date, she has won three, drawn three and left me a consolation of the other.’>

There's a discussion about her birthdate. She might have been born on 15 October 1902.
