Letter from Juan Estébanez to Juan Agustín Alfonso María Smit, pseudonym used by Pedro Pieres.
The author replies to Juan Agustín Alfonso María Smit apologizing for not being able to testify in his favour for him to achieve his release.
Litigation against Pedro Pieres, a native to France and naturalized in Gibraltar, who had been a military in different companies from which he had deserted. He was accused, together with two cronies, of using false identities for getting alms in churches pretending to be a new Christian converted from Lutheranism. At the time of the arrest three letters and some false passports were seized. He was also accused of desertion. During the proceeding, it was found out he was using at least two pseudonyms (Ignacio Godiafin and Juan Agustín Smit) and he was distorting the places where he was sending the letters from in order to hide his identity and his real whereabouts.
