Galvez, Josef de
California. January 19, 1773. 56p. Informe. Copy.
Concerns Barri's response to viceroy's request for information. says his knowledge only from a few confidential letters as to Fages' conduct. Has asked Palou to submit list of converted Indian families who could be relocated. Has sent mules and horses to Fages. Discusses most opportune time for safe transportation of mail and provisions. says Indians are given rations not salaries which violates instructions of visitador general. Lack of payment as well as harsh treatment and hunger drives Indians away and makes conversions difficult. says harmony with Franciscan priests can't be achieved because they interpret viceroy's orders as they See fit. Many military men support this opinion. Relates a great resentment due to Dominican take-over. Responding to request for information on Ibarzabal, Barri sends documents from 1769 which confirm his receipt of religious licenses. Documents describe area of Ibarzabal's jurisdiction. Galvez recommended 365 pesos per year salary and asks bishop to immediately award him a canonical institution. Gives instructions for building and administration of new church. License granted to Ibarzabal to administer sacraments, to marry all ethnic groups as well to perform Altar and confessional duties. Galvez also ordered a cemetery established and gave Ibarzabal right to bless it. Description of all activities Ibarzabal authorized to perform. (M. Dannemiller, March 1988)
