Notes

  • -  The Princess is replying to the archbishop's letter of November 30, 1554, in which he had informed the Crown of his arrival in Mexico. She expresses her pleasure at this and hopes for good results from his presence. She tells him to send advice for legislation. She is pleased by his desire for peace between the royal and ecclesiastical jurisdictions. She charges him to do everything that he can toward that end; she is writing to the audiencia regarding these matters. She is writing to the Viceroy regarding the construction of the first part of the cathedral, which the archbishop thought could be completed in 12 or 15 years; the archbishop will know of her decision through the Viceroy.
