What did you tell to the king of Kotte? You did not come looking for a job no Mr. Almeida. You had no such issues in Lisbon NO. Good trader Almeida knows you are a huge trader and you had enough of money. To which destination you sent all those gems, pepper and eth dala Mr. Lorenzo did you send them to Constantinople? Our spices they know better
This is not a petition note de Almeida but a letter like the one that our Mr. Leel Gunasekara wrote little bit longer ago not in 15th, 16th or 18th s long and long years after your visitation with so much hesitations. What route you chose anyways to reach Galle. That letter has a name that is ‘pethsama’.
