Summary: 
In this Series the bishop requests ^permission^ of governor Diego Guajardo Fajardo to implement a royal cedula allowing the bishop to send his own man to help run the Jesuit Tarahumara mission at Huejotitlan. The bishop then sends out Juan del Candano. This upsets padre Gabriel very much. He points out that Alonso is adequately running the mission and that the bishop has no business interfering with mission activity. The bishop bases his argument on a cedula from the vr count de Alba - put it is possible that the Duke of albuerque is now vr and so this is why the strong retort by padre Villar. Persons- padre Gabriel de Villar, Jesuit Superior of Tarahumara missions; bishop Diego de Heria Valdez, bishop of Nueva Viscaya; padre Juan del Candano, at Huejotitlan; padre Alonso de Rivera, Huejotitlan.
