SUMMARY.
The Council of the Indies reports that on the 30th August
1629, Juan de Lezama as Procurator-General of Guayana
and Trinidad described the sad condition of these provinces
being without a priest and destitute of spiritual assistance.

His Majesty gave these provinces in charge of the
Archbishop of the New Kingdom of Granada who excused
himself from these duties on account of the great distance
it was necessary to travel to these areas.

His Majesty then charged these provinces on the Bishop
of Porto Rico who reported that he was stationed 300 leagues
away across the sea which was infested by dangerous enemies.

These provinces have now for many years been without
spiritual help. The Council recommends the appointment
of an Abbad with an Iglesia Capitular for these two districts,
to be paid from the tenths levied as ecclesiastical dues.


This report is endorsed by the King who ordered the
establishment of an Abbad to be paid 6oo ducats from the
Royal Treasury.
