1535. Carta de Rodrigo de Espinosa para Arnao de Plano.

Author(s) Rodrigo de Espinosa      
Addressee(s) Arnao de Plano      
In English

Letter from Rodrigo de Espinosa to Arnao de Plano.

The author writes Arnao de Plano to inform him about a certain sum of money and a certain business they both are involved in. He also tells him more personal things, for example that he received knowledge that the addressee will get married, and he tells him that Navarre is a good place to form a family.

In 1543, Arnao de Plano, a merchant from the region of the French Navarre (Bearne), brought a lawsuit against Rodrigo de Espinosa, a merchant from Pamplona very active in the Castilian markets, for the outstanding payment of a debt. In order to demonstrate the existence of the debt, Arnao de Plano presented various letters from Rodrigo de Espinosa, where this talked about the sums of money which he owed to the plaintiff. The analysis of the ledger of Arnao de Plano confirmed the accusation against Rodrigo de Espinosa, who was eventually arrested and condemned to pay 8000 ducats.
