Settlement of debt.
San Joseph de Parral y Durango. January, 1649 orig. Sgnd.
Diego has to sell 2 haciendas for debts owed to Toribio and the state - the inventory is valuable. There were 14 slaves involved - Negroes, mulatos, chinese and Indians. However, this is a story befitting the talents of a Perry Mason. It turns out that goliano is the victim of crime. Fernandez has joined forces with Melchor de Valdez, a.m. to rob goliano. In the course of the investigation (a long one, this document is 470 pages long), a mercury ring is uncovered - Melchor de Valdez has been siphoning it off and selling it to mines - making easier and cheaper for them in return for silver.
