Notes

  • -  The queen acknowledges Bishop Zumárraga's letters and the good work which he is doing among the natives. She encourages him to continue his work with even greater effort if possible and to exhort the friars to do likewise. He is to report any grievances of the Indians to the Viceroy or to the Crown. She was pleased by the processions and prayers which had been offered when word reached Mexico of the fall of Tunis, and she asks that prayers be continued for victory and the happy return of His Majesty. She commends him for having handed over to the Viceroy his decrees relative to the protection of the Indians, but she insists that he must continue to advise both the Viceroy and Crown regarding the good treatment and instruction of the Indians...
