were my own, inasmuch as S[efi]or D[o]n Juan is acting in my
place on this expedition. S [efi]or D [o]n Francisco Barbadillo,
whom I have appointed gov[ern]or of the Kingdom of Le6n,
shall give him any assistance he may request. The captains of
those presidios shall do likewise. To this end the strictest orders
shall be dispatched to them. I hereby declare that S [efi]or
D [o]n Juan shall not pay the half year annates on these com-
missions because he is going to [a territory of] active warfare.
For his fulfillment of this commission, the necessary dispatches
shall be issued to him, and he shall enjoy all the honors, ex-
emptions, and privileges which are allowed by law, right, and
custom, and especially those which municipal [laws] of the Indies
grant and which he may enjoy without exception or limitation
whatever. I shall take it upon myself to report to H[is]
M [ajesty] his zeal for the r[oya]l serv [ic]e and the resignation
of his person to this enterprise in order that [His Majesty] may
reward his merit in whatever manner his r [oya]1 wish may direct.
