Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This is a very important account by one of the most famous missionaries of the sixteenth century, of marriage rules among the early Tupi of the region of Sao Paulo. The present translation is taken from the original article published in the REVISTA TRIMENSAL of the Brazilian Historical and Geographical Institute for 1846. The original manuscript is to be found in a much larger book of 215 pages, containing various narratives written by Brazilian Jesuits at the close of the sixteenth century, and which today resides in the Biblioteca Eborense. Pages 130-136 of the manuscript are taken up with the Casamentos article. Whether the donor of the manuscript alluded to in the text, Adolpho Varnhagen, gave the Institute the actual manuscript or merely a copy is not made clear, but, whatever the situation, the Institute certainly possesses a facimile if not the real thing.
