  • -  The bishops of Mexico and Oaxaca have reported that some of the Spanish women who went to teach the Indian girls are leaving their houses because of lack of support; the bishops requested that each woman be given several varas of cloth every two or three years. The Queen commands that if, in the Viceroy's view, the women's work is worthwhile, they should be given for a period of two years the amount of cloth that seems good to him.
