Cristoval de Guzman, Governor of Trinidad to the King.
September 28th, 1714. Trinidad.

Source : Additional MSS. 36331. British Museum.

Translated from the Spanish.

He reports that he assumed duty in Trinidad on the
21st April, 1711.

On the 20th May, 1711 I climbed myself the mountain
of Maracas (whose slopes reach the sea on the north coast of
this Island) penetrating with no little trouble and danger the
steep and rugged slopes up to the place where the lookout
keeps watch for the approach of any enemy in which duty
the guard is diligent and wakeful. I fell sick afterwards from
these great efforts and from the heat and humidity of this
place but do not complain since it is the result of my continual
desire to serve Your Majesty."

He reports that on 28th September, 1711 the Father of
the Capuchin Mission in Naparima asked permission to
return to Spain having been there for 10 years. This was
refused as there was no one to replace him.

On the 14th June, 1712 he visited the Mission to the
Napullos (Napuyos) Indians, and on the ist February, 1713
the Bishop of Porto Rico arrived in Trinidad.
