Notes

  • -  The Prince is answering Bishop Zumárraga's letter of February 24, 1548, in which the bishop had made some suggestions for the good of the colony and the natives. The Prince approves a donation (unspecified) which the bishop has made to the hospital for those suffering from venereal disease as well as the donation of three houses to help support it with their rents. Next to the hospital there is a house which was used for the instruction of the daughters of Indian nobles, but now it is empty. The bishop has asked that it also be appropriated to the hospital, and the Prince approves. Because the bishop complained about the excessive fees for lawyers, the Prince is writing to the audiencia to command them to establish rates for lawyers. Zumárraga had also suggested that an approved physician should examine the apothecaries, inspect their shops, and fix the prices for medicine. The Prince is also commanding the audiencia to attend to this matter.
