The firm is writing at 'the special request of Miss Ellen Antonia Teresa Ann Garbayo, at present risiding abroad [...] It appears that the above Lady is desirous of contacting marriage, but cannot do so without the production of her Baptismal Certificate. She states that she was baptised about the year 1827, by a Doctr. Moore of St. Patrick's Church London'. The firm has for some time tried to 'discover the said Dr. Moore but without success, and has written to Miss Garbayo to that effect. 'In reply Miss Garbayo urgently requests us to lay her Case before your Eminence, and to invoke your powerful aid in discovering the Dr. Moore referred to, and to aid her if practicable in procuring the desired Certificate of her Baptism'.
