The Governor Queen
Respectful Don Rodrigo de Borja Lanzol my lieutenant and captain general. I have received your letter from the past G. in response to what I ask you to write on October 16, about renting the right of the 10 per 100. And having seen on this supreme council and the paper you sent with different chapters and conditions that offer men of business from that kingdom about entering to this renting. It seems to reply to you, that it is not convenient to rent this right for now. I wanted to advise you so you can be warned. Dated M Madrid 16 January 1666
