THE TRINIDAD HISTORICAL SOCIETY.

Publication No. 74.

Cedula to the Admiral Don Diego Colon as to taking Indians fromn
Trinidad.

June 6th, 1511. From Seville, Sfpain.

Source :-Coleccion de DocumentosIneditos. Pacheco y Cardcnas.
1864. Translated from the Spanish.

The King ... To Don Diego Colon. Our Admiral and Governor
of the Indies.



With respect to the doubt about bringing Indians from
the Island of Trynidad, look well if there is gold there for
you know what the Indians suffer in changing them ficm
one place to another.

Perhaps it will be better to make use of them there, but
do what seems best to you.

So that more Indians may be brought proclaim a licence
for so doing without paying us the fifth which we make a
present to the inhabitants of Espanola and Sant Xoan.

The conversion of the Indians is the principal foundation
of the conquest and that which principally ought to be
regarded. Act therefore so that the Indians there (in
Trynidad) may increase and not diminish as in Espanola.
*

I, THE KING.

By Order of His Highness.


LOPEZ CONCHILLO.
