Notes

  • -  The Queen informs the audiencia that Juana Velázquez, a beata, had written to the Queen, in her name and in that of the other beatas in Mexico City, about their good work of teaching the daughters of caciques and about the good order of their house; she had asked that, since they were not nuns but only a group of pious women, they should not be subject to inspection by the Franciscan friars nor forced to conform to a strict rule but should be inspected by the audiencia. The Queen commands that if the beatas have not given obedience to any order, the audiencia should decree that they should not be subject to inspection by the Franciscan friars and that the audiencia should make the most suitable provision for the future.
