Notes

  • -  The King had been advised that in the Indies there were some secular priests who were doing well for the service of God by instructing and converting the natives; it would be a loss if they were permitted to return to Spain. He therefore charges the bishops not to give permission easily for such priests to return but to urge them to stay, giving them help and encouragement.
