1790 March 3
|Type of Resource:|
Marriage contract, manuscript, ink on vellum, dated 17th of Adar 5550 at Gibraltar (1790). The text is in cursive. The outlines of a decoration appear in pencil, but the decoration was never completed. It would appear that the bride and groom were of Shepardic (Spanish-Jewish) families. The text includes a prayer that God show his mercy and protect and preserve ""the exiled from Castile"" and eventually avenge the injustice done to them.
