THE KING-Don Diego Lopez de Escouar, my Governor
and Captain-General of the Island of I rinidad and of Guayana;
in a letter written to me by Don Martin de Saavedra y Guzman,
my Governor and Captain General of the New Kingdom of
Granada on the 31st of May 1639 reporting the difficulties
of your situation owing to the invasions of the enemy, he has
given me a report upon the expedition which was sent to you
to resist the enemy and the care with which he has assisted
with all that is necessary.
On receiving this letter, it was considered in the Council
of War with all the other matters of this government as well
as the letters which you have written to me and other papers
and reports.
I have ordered that an agreement be made with
Don Martin de Mendoca to fortify these two towns and to
dislodge the enemy from the various posts they occupy in
these parts and I have granted him this government after
you have completed your term as you shall learn from other
dispatches and cedulas of this date sent to the care of the
said Don Martin de Saavedra. You should facilitate all
this in every way as a matter of great importance.
In my Council of War it was decided to send such help
as was possible to meet the present difficulties and necessities.
I command you not to leave your government until your
successor arrives and if it be Don Martin de Mendoca, it
is my wish that you do not leave without having first
complied with the instructions given to him.
Madrid. i3stJuly, I640.
By order of the King, Our Lord.
