Notes

  • -  Juan Ruiz Rubio, in the name of the archbishop of Mexico and his cabildo, had reported that the Viceroy and the regidores of the city were threatening to take away a large part of the land that had been set aside for the cathedral, even though it had been blessed by the first bishop of Tlaxcala. They would have only enough space for the body of the church, without room for the offices which would be necessary. The archbishop's representatives asked that the area be reserved for the church and that in the meantime the Crown should command that the area not be used as a dung heap, dumping ground, or a place for keeping and killing bulls, since it had been consecrated. The Princess commands the audiencia to look into the matter promptly and to reach a decision which would not give any of the parties grounds for complaint.
