1913 Excerpt: ... Sacred Caesarean Catholic Majesty: I, Don Pedro
Gutierrez de Ayala, lawful son and heir of Diego Gutierrez who was
appointed Governor and Captain-General by Your Majesty of the
Province of Veragua, and of all the rest that was contained in the
capitulation and agreement which Your Majesty commanded to be made
with the said Diego Gutierrez to whom I refer, --I say that the
said Diego Gutierrez, my father, is dead, as Your Majesty has known
already, and for this reason Your Majesty commanded that I should
be notified that, within nine days following, I might appoint a
person to take charge of the administration of the said province,
which order was extended until the day of The Kings (Epiphany) of
the year 1547. Therefore, in compliance with such order, I appoint
as such Governor and Captain-General of the said Province of
Veragua and of the other regions contained in the capitulation, so
that he may go and may hold all that the said Diego Gutierrez could
and should hold and govern in conformity therewith (except what is
below retained for myself), Juan Perez de Cabrera, domiciled in the
city of Cuenca, an able person and capable of taking charge of the
said offices and-all other things which the said Diego Gutierrez
could and ought to hold; he is a person who has been and lived in
that region, has much knowledge of it and has been Governor and
Captain-General of the boundaries (confines2) of Veragua for Your
Majesty, a gentleman, an hidalgo, well related in these kingdoms
and a person who is suitable for the service of God and Your
Majesty and for the welfare and progress of these provinces, etc. 1
