Letter from Juan Carpio Lozano, a shoemaker, to Juan de Palomares, a shoemaker.
Juan Carpio Lozano asks his friend Juan de Palomares to take María Rodríguez to retract her declaration that she and Juan Carpio Lozano were married.
The defendant of this process was Juan Carpio Lozano, a shoemaker. He was accused of the crime of bigamy for having married twice: firstly, with Ana Gómez in Toledo and then, in 1647, with María Rodríguez, widow of Francisco Ramiro Luengo, in Madrid. The letters sent by the defendant to his friend Juan de Palomares, a prisoner, and to his first wife, were joined to the proceedings as proofs. Eventually, however, the trial was suspended, because María Rodríguez retracted her declarations and affirmed that, although they had lived together, she was not actually married to Juan Carpio Lozano.
