[bound with the same author's] Representacion al rey nuestro señor Don Carlos III.... en la cual, trayéndose á exámen los principales fundamentos, en que se apoyan los regulares párrocos de Philipinas, para eximirse de la jurisdiccion de los ordinarios de ellas, y de su visita, en cuanto á lo que es meramente la cura de almas, se demuestra claramente, ser nulos, y falsos; evidenciándose con la misma solidex la injusta contradiccion, é injuria, que por los referidos regulares ha padecido en este punto el Santo concilio de Trento, y las bulas pontificias, las leyes de Indias, con repetidas, y las mas terminantes reales cédulas de S.M. preceptivas de la visita, que aqui se expresan. Manila: En la imprenta de la Universidad de Santo Tomas, 1768. [1], 39 ff. [bound with the same author's] Memorial al rey nvestro señor D. Carlos III ... Hecho con el motivo de los distvrbios, qve hán intentado mover algunos regulares de Philipinas, mal afectos á la jurisdiccion episcopal ... Manila: En la Imprenta de la universidad de Santo Thomas, 1768. [1], 12 ff. [bound with the same author's] [drop-title] Señor. El año pasa de sesenta y ocho remiti a las reales manos de V.M. testimonio de las deposciones, que de mi orden se recivieron sobre las discordias, que algunos regulares pretendieron suscitar entre este prelado y su verable cabildo ... [Manila: no printer/publisher, 1769]. [8] ff.
        Sancho de Santa Justa arrived in Manila in 1767 to take up his duties as archbishop, which included overseeing the expulsion of the Jesuits. He was a native of Aragon and a member of the Society of Scholarum Piarum.
        Bound in this sammelband are four reports or letters addressed to the crown concerning various matters relating to the Jesuits and to other regular clergy, all printed on native paper (a.k.a., "rice paper"). The Exemplares concerns the confiscation of books produced by Jesuits and the edict to suppress them. They had arrived on the frigate La Venus in 1769; but after reading them, the archbishop allows them to circulate freely. The Representacion addresses the authority that regular clergy want to exert in parishes in contravention of canon and civil law, including disallowing the archbishop to visit their parishes, while the Memorial deals with the attempts by regular clergy to disrupt the relationship of the archbishop with his cabildo. The fourth and last item gives further information on the same matter as the third publication.
        All four items are most uncommon. Exemplares is held by no U.S. library, Memorial and Señor are held by the Lilly only, Representacion by only Duke and University of Virginia.
