Notes

  • -  It had been reported that the archbishop had interfered with the secular judges in the execution of justice by imposing censures on them, especially in the case of a certain Quijada, a former soldier of Gonzalo Pizarro in Peru, who had been condemned forever to the galleys and who later had committed crimes in New Spain. The Princess charges him to restrain himself in imposing censures in the future, since it is not right for such malefactors to find asylum in the church; she further commands him to punish the clergy for any excesses which they may commit.
