Background
Felipe and Federico Barreda were awarded the contract to act as consignee for the sale of guano in the United States by the government of Peru. The export of guano from the Chincha Islands for use as fertilizer was a prime source of income for the Peruvian government between 1840 and 1867. In fact, during those years it was unnecessary to levy any taxes.
