1665. Carta de Alonso Gómez de Figueroa para doña María Almansa Pereira y Castro.

Author(s) Alonso Gómez de Figueroa      
Addressee(s) María Almansa Pereira y Castro      
In English

Private letter from Alonso Gómez de Figueroa to doña María Almansa Pereira y Castro.

The author offers the recipient his condolences for the death of her father. In a clear allusion to an earlier letter from this lady, he informs her about the efforts to solve some payments owed to don Fernando and which now belonged to doña María, as his heir.

In 1680, a lawsuit starts that extends well into the eighteenth century, having as a main cause the payment of debts to important creditors of the Counts of Salvatierra, don Diego and don José Francisco Sarmiento. According to one of the pieces, doña María de Almansa, as heir of don Fernando de Almansa, administrator of state revenues of Salvatierra between 1662 and 1665, should receive the 12,571 reais owed by the Count. In the process, no specific reason is given for the inclusion of these letters, which appear among various administrator accounts from those years. Perhaps they could be taken as proof of the Count's intentions to pay off his debt, something that he later ratified in his will, dated 1675.

If there is no translation for the letter itself, you may copy the text (while using the view 'Standardization') and paste it to an automatic translator of your choice.
