Notes

  • -  The Queen had been informed that, although the sons of the Indian nobility and the Indian girls were being educated well in the monasteries and by the pious women, respectively, their parents gave them over unwillingly or hid them, and it had been suggested that they be taken away and put in the schools. The Queen orders the audiencia and bishop to consider the matter, decree what can be done with the least scandal, and send her a report.
