Record of payment to the official carpenter of the Inquisition in Valencia, Spain, Pedro de Gracia, along with four other local carpenters working as independent contractors, for the construction of the scaffold and stage used for the auto-da-fé celebrated in Valencia on September 9, 1584. The four independent carpenters are Vicente Ferrer, Luys Joan, Hieronymo Ferrer, and Domingo Vallada. The total payment to the five carpenters is 110 pounds in the "money of Valencia." Benito Sanguino, who appears to have written and signed his own statement, is identified as the court clerk authorized to disburse the payment, and the approving officials are Dr. Pedro de Çarate and Joan Llano de Valdes. Joan Bautista Trilles signs the separate statements by the different parties and appears be the author of the document as a whole. There are other clerical notes on the outside of the document from 1586 and 1589. It is written in a cursive script by multiple hands. There is a pilgrim watermark similar to Valls i Subirá, Hombre/Home 1594, with two unidentified initials underneath.
