Your letter of the 12th May received with enclosures. Although Antonio de Frias Salazar, of whom you speak, arrived before the letter, the latter came in good time to inform us fully upon the matter. He has been given audience, and has been listened to. A decision shall be arrived at as soon as possible, the matter being now under consideration. I have no more to say, as all your letters have been answered, and I do not know whether you have set out upon your journey.—San Lorenzo, 30th June 1591.
