Notes

  • -  Loaysa states that after serving for 21 years as president of the Council of the Indies, he is more qualified than anyone to give as opinion on good government and royal service in the Indies. He reminds the King of his opposition to the law of 1542 which would have terminated the encomienda and of the turmoil which resulted when the law was announced. He is especially upset that more than 200,000 pesos have been lost to the treasury in Peru and thinks that 500,000 pesos will be lost before the area is pacified. Considering the slight credit that has been given to his previous opinions, he might excuse himself from giving another were it not that his whole purpose is to serve the King.
