Summary
Series of documents dealing with the territorial division of Nuevo Santander between the obispados of Mexico, Michoacan, and Guadalaxara. Letter from the king for virrey requesting information of the situation of Nuevo Santander on the reduction and pacification of Indians. Letter from church of Guadalaxara complaining to virrey because many people left that city to establish in Nuevo Santander on condition of not paying Diezmos. The arzobispado of Mexico is also asking for Diezmos. Fiscales suggest to the virrey that he make the determination, because in the expediente was a letter of Escandon requesting the creation of a new Obispado, and according to Altamira it was approved by the virrey in that period. Virrey orders a copy sent to the Arzobispo and obispos for their view of the pros and cons of creating a new Obispado. (D. Bautista, April 1990)
