Summary
Review of financial and accounting abuses of Jesuits in California, Sonora, Pimeria and Nayarit. Contains a number of specific accusations against Jesuits for fraud and states that over a period of 70 years they embezzled more than one million pesos from the real hacienda. Basarte bases many of his accusations on the letters of padre Balthasar (or Baltasar) to padre general Retz which strongly indicate fraud within the Jesuit hiearchy. (D. Miller) (1978)
