Cardenas, (O.F.M.) Father J(ose)phe Luis Mariano de, of the College of Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe de los Zacatecas (Mexico) and missionary of the mission Bahia del Espiritu Santo, (Texas)

Since he cannot collect personally the debt owed the mission by Antonio Blanc of New Orleans since the time of Father Miguel de Santa Maria, one time minister of the mission, he authorizes Father Francisco Gamarra vice-president and missionary of the post of Nacogdoches (Texas) to collect said sum either thru himself or thru another. He sends the original of the promise to pay of the debtor. If Blanc cannot pay in cash he may pay in merchandise according to the permit of the governor of Texas (Rafael Martinez Pacheco) which he encloses. That this document may be accepted in any tribunal he affixes his signature.
