Summary
Preamble to viceroy's response to Castro's criticisms of peace efforts cautioning him to obey orders without delay or further discussion. Castro assures viceroy of compliance with orders insure peace between Lipanes and other tribes; troops to cease patrols, engagements with Lipanes. Revilla Gigedo responds unfavorably to Castro's initiation of measures above noting they violate, distort his orders and it is not his place to ratify conditions of negotiated peace. Castro expresses astonishment, remorse, confusion , etc. Over viceroy's admonitions, threat of retiring Castro from his comandancia. Viceroy applauds Castro's new-found humility assuring him he will not be decommissioned, only that another officer will conduct negotiations. Castro embarks on lengthy dissertation on historical nobility, loyalty, honor of himself, his family in king's service claiming his honor unjustly besmirched by viceroy noting he has petitioned king to address this injustice. Revilla Gigedo expresses increasing irritation with Castro and fact his remonstrances have not served to enlighten Castro but only inspire greater effrontery, insubordination on Castro's part. Notes matter has been turned over to judgement of his majesty for resolution. (J. Higgins, April 1989)
