Documents in the second group include sale and rental contracts for structures used for non-residential purposes, such as mills and shops; dealings related to the textile business; dealings related to the sale and purchase of produce and grains; contracts of small business incorporation; and accounts, debts, credits and related disputes. The last group of documents are copies, dated 1576, of 10 early 15th-century letters in Latin between officers of Massa e Cozzile and of Montecatini (in the manuscript as Monte Catini) di Valdinievole, 2 communi under Florentine jurisdiction, attempting to establish an agreement between the 2 communities (Folder 320).
