Henriquez, (Father) Theodoro Thirso Henrique, vicar and
ecclesiastical judge of Louisiana
He orders that an official copy of this record be made in order to place it in the secret archives of this vicariate. Note: (under same date) by Estevan de Quinones, notary public, states that the official copy was made.
Quintanilla, O.M.Cap., Father Luis de, Vicente de Alcala,
They have been commanded by Father Henriquez to go over the account rendered by Father Antonio de Sedella, O.M.Cap. on Jan. 18, 1790 to Cirilo (Sieni) of Barcelona, tit. bp. of Tricali of his time as mayordomo of the fabrique of the parish of St. Louis in New Orleans. Not finding all the records of collection for Father Sedella's time they had recourse to Father Diego de Carriedo, (O.M.Cap.), who allowed them to use the parish books but again they found part of record missing and so they were compelled to adjust by estimate the income of the fabrique for the years not covered by the record. They state the number of funerals both of whites and colored for the periods under discussion and follow this up by a list of the customary charges for a funeral. From this they computed the income from the funerals of the various classes, white and colored, free and slave, adults and children. They mention receipts from Juan Durel, mayordomo of the fabrique and Antonio Ramis. It is supposed that the pews from which most of the church revenue had come were destroyed in the fire of March 21, 1788. They mention payments made by Father Simon de Fuentes as well as others to Josef Martinez, Bartolome Bosch, (Jean) Aubry and the Ursulines. Although they know that there should have been more stipends during the period when Father Sedella was mayordomo (yet) as the settlement of these belongs to the collectorship not to the office of mayordomo they could draw up the general accounts only by means of the receipts which had been given to the collector. These receipts are missing so they could draw up no other account than that made by (Father Sedella).
