"Permits the re-entrance of the Jesuits into certain parts of Mexico, especially the Californias - Upper and Lower. This order, which played so great a role in the development of the Spanish Southwest, had been driven from that region in the middle of the eighteenth century and was only now - in this decree - permitted to return. Among the interesting and very significant paragraphs of this official decree is one which orders that the Jesuits are to be paid by the Pious Fund of the Californias, that great religious and charitable foundation which was responsible for much of the settlement of the Californias" - Eberstadt. Extremely rare. OCLC locates only three copies.
