Private letter from António Pereira, vicar, to António Gouveia, vicar general.
The author tells the facts about a case of bigamy that he himself had uncovered.
This case concerns Diogo Nunes, a false identity that Gonçalo Nunes engineered in order to marry for a second time, in Elvas. Faced with this suspicion, the vicar of Elvas, António Pereira, together with the city's bailiffs, investigated him and sent a letter to the ecclesiastical authorities of Évora telling the aforementioned facts (PSCR0027). Along with this communication, he also sent two letters written by the defendant: one (PSCR0028) as evidence of his crime, and the other one to his first wife (PSCR0029).
