to Father Antonio de Sedella, vicar of the provinces of Louisiana.
(New Orleans, Louisiana)

He has informed Sedella by means of a copy of the royal order of Aug. 6, 1786 of his majesty's approval of the (Hechavarria's) temporary decision that the three French nuns be kept at the convent of the Ursulines (in New Orleans). By a letter of Aug. 5, 1787, the King has decided that the nuns be incorporated in that monastery and now Hechavarria tells Sedella to see to the fulfillment of the royal decision and inform him of the results.
