Eleanor B. Adams of the University of New Mexico has pub-
lished an interesting study entitled Bishop Tamardn's Visitation
of New Mexico, 176o. This study, which appears in Volume XV,
February, 1954, of the Publications in History of the Historical
Society of New Mexico, is presented in three parts. The introduc-
tion discusses the claim of the bishopric of Durango to jurisdiction
over New Mexico, Bishop Pedro Tamar6n y Romeral, and his
visitation of New Mexico. The second section is devoted to a
translation of Tamar6n's description of New Mexico and the
places included on the itinerary of the visitation. Two appendices
form the final section, the first of which contains a comparison of
Tamar6n's report and that of Bishop Benito Crespo in 1730, fol-
lowed by a translation of Fray Andrbs Varo's statement to Provin-
cial Fray Jose Ximeno about conditions at Santa Maria de las
Caldas in February, 1751.
