The volume includes discussion of a hacienda at Chuquitanta near Lima. Juan José de la Puente e Ibàñez de Segovia, fifth Marques de Corpa (1724-1796), a lawyer by training who was an honorary member of the Council of the Indies and a knight of the Order of Calatrava, was being sued for dowry money that he was said to owe his deceased daughter, who was called Constanza. The present plaintiff, a minor called Ana Maria Grimanesa, was having her claims to the dowry advanced - although she was not actually Constanza?s daughter (her father was Constanza?s husband but had subsequently married another woman and she was from that union). The senior Lima-born lawyer Francisco Arias de Saavedra (1746-1823) who was presenting the case, is stated also to be the young girl?s guardian. This suggests that by this time, Grimanesa?s father had died and the lawyer (as he is known to have done) had married her mother, thus becoming the plaintiff?s stepfather.
