Twelve-Page Unidentified Latin American Manuscript

DATE
Year: 1624
Decade: 1620s
Century: 17th (1601-1700)
Notes: The date 1624 is written on the bottom of the last page.

Twelve page hand-written Latin American manuscript.

According to scholar Gonzalo Sec, “This manuscript is the last will of somebody called Don Juan de la Fuente, from Villa de Oropesa in Bolivia signed in 1624. He was probably an individual of some status as he requested to be buried inside the church of San Juan de Sorarora (or perhaps Lorarora), where his wife rests.”
