This cahier of documents begins with a Spanish-language translation of the letter mentioned in the "title" of the manuscript: It was originally written in Italian from Puebla, Mexico, in 1647, while Palafox was bishop of that see and attempting to reestablish episcopal control over the various regular orders. Other documents are narratives of events in Rome concerning ecclesiastical court decisions; a copy of Palafox's letter of 5 December 1657 from Osma about the imbroglio with the Jesuits in Mexico, with a copy of Dr. Juan Mangano's response to it; and a copy of Carlos III's letter of 12 August 1760 to Pope Clement XIII => seeking the beatification of Bishop Palafox.
A manuscript of more than passing interest for Palafoxian scholars, and one that is very clean and easy to read.
