Notes

  • -  The King first reminds the Viceroy that royal orders have been issued previously regarding the construction of friaries. He has now received a report that friaries are being built close together because the friars want to be in good areas and close to Mexico City. In other more difficult areas Indians may be left without instruction for a distance of 20 or 30 leagues. Following suggestions in the report, the King commands the Viceroy to see that future friaries are not built closer than six leagues apart, and that the friaries in one province of the country should all belong to the same order.
