Letter from Francisco Pavón, an assistant to the Ambassador, to his sister Gabriela Pavón.
The author offers his sister his condolences for her husband´s death. He also announces he has sent her some money through Diego de Santiyán.
Pedro Ronquillo Briceño passed away in London on August the 7th 1691 while he was the Ambassador Extraordinary for the Catholic King. A few years later, in 1704, Francisco Ronquillo, Pedro´s brother and main heir, took part in a litigation with some creditors following a claim for the payment of certain debts. The testamentary was Diego de Santiyán, who was asked to present the accounts he had managed for the deceased Ambassador. Indeed, Santiyán was given access to those accounts by power of attorney. Therefore, the aforementioned accounts were attached to the proceeding documentation, as well as letters and payment orders to several servants and private individuals.
In the same sheet of the letter transcribed in here there is a receipt in Gabriela Pavón´s name.
