Family letter from Jorge Pinto to his wife Catarina Lourenço.
The author tells his wife about his desire to be with her again really soon.
The defendant in this process is Jorge Pinto, scribe of the king's galleys, accused of bigamy by the Inquisition of Lisbon. According to several testimonies, Jorge Pinto married Catarina Lourenço when his galleys spent some time in Tavira.

Before the Inquisition, the defendant always said that his marriage to Catarina Lourenço was never consummated. This is something, however, that the letters included in the process deny.
