8th June, 1622.

SIRE-Don Fernando de Berrio y Oruna who succeeded
to the government of the Island of Trinidad and of Guayana
by the death of his father and in virtue of the agreement made
with the father respecting the discoveries and settlements of
those lands, when coming to these Kingdoms was taken
prisoner by the Moors. This government therefore remains
with none in command.

The coasts of the Island of Trinidad and of Guayana are
very much frequented by pirates and from reports which have
been received about his brother Don Francisco de la Hoz y
Berrio, recently Governor and Captain General of the Province
of Venezuela where he acted with integrity and with care for
the increase of the Royal Exchequer and for the welfare and
preservation of the country, the inhabitants and the Indians,
the Council is of opinion that the said Don Francisco might be
nominated to the said government in the interim until the
aforesaid Don Fernando returns there.

May Your Majesty direct in accordance with Your
Royal pleasure.
