Las Casas, Luis de

to Bishop Penalver y Cardenas
(New Orleans)
Luis de Casas states:
1. That he has received the official letter of Jan. 4, and copy enclosed therewith of the Bishop addressed to the Archbishop of Santo Domingo, to be delivered by de las Casas when the Archbishop passes by Havana. In it Bishop Cardenas asks him also to send to Louisiana some of the pastors who remained without employment after the cession of Santo Domingo to France.
2. That, considering that the Archbishop may stay for some time in his diocese, Las Casas, to forward matters, will send to him the official letter. In the case that the Archbishop arrives in Havana without having received it, Las Cases will instruct the Archbishop from the copy he has of the official letter. This is signed by Luis de las Casas.
