Letter from Rodrigo de Espinosa to Arnao de Plano.
The author writes Arnao de Plano to tell him various things. First of all, he thanks him and he tells him that his family thinks highly of him. He expresses him his happiness for his marriage, and the sadness he has felt for the death of his servant. He also informs him that in Navarre there are still people who owes him money, and gives him other news about his business.
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.
