Description

Letter to Thomaz Filipe in response to a request for a negotiation of some cows with calves. The sender obliges, saying that they will be delivered, and that the price is of one onca each, unless a price has been previously established with Mr. Larraury. In this case, Mr. Larraury will deliver the cows and calves. If they are to be used for meat, the price is 12 patacoes. The sender says that Thomaz Filipe can take as many as he wants, but asks for a receipt in the letter from Mr. Larraury. On an ending note, the sender says he wanted to write to Mr. Larraury, but can't find paper. The sender might be Gaspar Gomes Dias.
