Summary
A very clear and comprehensive account by a Jesuit missionary in the Parras area who turned over his mission to the secular clergy. He recounts how the change affected the Indians, quarrels with the bishop, inadequacies of the clergy etc. In a second letter a month later the padre recounts a conflict over the water supply and that all the Indians left for other places save the infirm, leaving the agriculture in decline.
