creek, where the Reverend Father Amillano came out with many
people from the presidio, and we reached the mission of the Adays
about five o'clock in the afternoon. The presidio fired five shots
of artillery as a salute upon our arrival, and the Fathers received
me with great love and charity. Then I went to the royal presidio
to pay my respects to the Honorable Governor, Don Hugo de
On the 9th mass was sung to the Most Divine as an expression of
thanks for the great success and happy arrival. The Honorable
Governor came to visit me at the mission with great affability and
politeness and remained to eat with us.
On the 10th I said the visiting mass. I inspected the church,
which is a very nice wooden building, well adapted, carved wood
roof. All of its jewels and ornaments are there, although old and
worn; of the sacred vessels, the very necessary ones [are there].
The church is clean, not dirty, well arranged and neat. After-

Miguel was a patron saint.
On the 16th solemn mass was sung to the Saint, and we re-

On the 17th I continued the inspection. The 18th also, and
on the 19th I concluded the visit to this Mission of the Adays.
On the 20th the Honorable Governor visited me; and in the eve-

El Bafio. About a half a league from it is a dense wood.
The 21st I stayed in the mission with the Fathers.
The 22nd I went to the presidio to speak to the Honorable Gov-
ernor on business touching my visit, and on the 23rd I went to
