This is a substantial portion of a handwritten manuscript regarding the terms of the original 1663 Asiento with Grillo and Lomelin. It appears to be an official contemporary copy of the original Asiento; Dated 31 July 1662. Re moved from a ledger and apparently part of a larger document. 6 pages written on four leaves, on paper bearing Spanish watermarks identical to those in the 1673 document (2006.003.0002a). The manner of payment, or share , to the Spanish crown for each slave sold was to be one hundred pesos in gold or silver, in bars or powder to be shipped to the posts of San Lucar and Sadiz in the South of Spain.
