It specifies that each maiden is to receive 500 pesos and that this money is to be administered by the St. Agustin of Our Lady of Grace Monastery.

The names of the persons paying these leases and the amount they are charged is listed in the document. In addition, the document describes the manner in which these maidens should be selected, their order of preference, and the qualities and conditions that must be met to qualify for the dowry.
