The Queen commands the audiencia, together with the bishop-elect and the Franciscan superior, to select a site for a house and monastery for the women and to have the Indians of the area construct it. For this purpose 200 pesos of 450 maravedis each are to be used from the royal funds to pay the Spanish foreman and artisans.
