Letter from Salvador Caramany y Fontdevila, a Spanish infantry cadet, to his brother Antonio Caramany y Fontdevila, a Carmelite religious.
The author reprimands his brother for a previous letter in which, presumably, he expresses disagreement regarding the settlement of an inheritance.
This case has several parts and it was initiated in 1765 between Narcisa Caramany y Fontdevila, Antonio Ros y Caramany´s widow, and her son Salvador Caramany y Fontdevila, a Spanish infantry cadet (see the case file 13768 of the same archival fond to consult the original litigation). The cause of the original litigation was the adjudication of properties from María Ros y Caramany, Salvador Caramany y Fontdevila´s paternal grandmother, once his father passed away. Salvador Caramany y Fontevidela claimed to his mother that in accordance with the dispositions in his grandmother´ will, the properties from the latter should be adjudicated to him with full rights. Therefore, Salvador Caramany y Fontevidela asked his mother to renounce all the properties she owned as a consequence of the aforementioned inheritance and give it away to him. These properties consisted in: the bakery and the Notary´s Office in the village of Bisbal del Ampurdán, the Caramany´s family house in the same village located in Riera street, the Caramany Tower in Cruïlles; and in San Pere Pescador: the Mas Can Caramany, the homestead called 'La Devesa', the homestead called 'El Cortal Nou', and a house with a bread oven, a carriage house and a garden. For her part, Narcisa Caramany y Fontdevila requested to continue being privileged trustee of all the properties her husband left until her dowry was entirely satisfied and integrated. The litigation extended until 1781.
