1797 Feb. 13

(Penalver y Cardenas, Luis) Bishop of
New Orleans, Louisiana

to Carlos Gran(d)-Pre
(New Orleans, Louisiana)

Penalver writes on the same date to Father Pedro Zamora, (O.M.Cap.) the following: Penalver has seen Zamora's letter of January 21 in which he enclosed the original letter of (Grand-Pre), Lieutenant Governor of the posts on the Colorado River. Zamora does not have to wait for vestments and sacred vessels to go to (Avoyelles) Abolleles; there are enough in Opel(o)usas which he can use once or twice. the first parish will be in that place and will relieve the Opel(o)usas parish of that charge. Zamora is to go to Avoyelles to administer the Sacraments of Penance and Holy Eucharist for the coming Lent. After erecting the parish there, even without a church, all materials will be sent so that it can help itself without hardship to the inhabitants or demands from Opel(o)usas. In this way Penalver answers Grand-Pre's letter of January 19. He asks Grand-Pre to help Zamora in his Christian purposes.
