Notes

  • -  In answer to several letters of the archbishop written in 1579, especially one of April 24, the King expresses his pleasure that the prelate is fulfilling the duties of his office well and encourages him to continue to inform the Crown of the colony's needs. He notes the archbishop's report that the Indian populations of the Huasteca and Pánuco have been greatly reduced. He has commanded Captain Luis de Carvajal, who is leaving with the present fleet for the conquest of Nuevo León, to take the remaining Indians under his care and to make the roads safe with his new conquest.
