PREFACE. 

Most of the volumes relating to foreign archives, hitherto prepared by the 
Department of Historical Research in the Carnegie Institution of Washing- 
ton, have been summary surveys or inventories of the materials for American 
history, or the history of the United States, contained in the particular archives 
treated. The present volume belongs to a different class, and of that class it 
is the first to be issued by the Institution. Therefore some explanation of its 
relation to the general plans of the Department is appropriate. 

In the task of making more available to students of American history the 
vast stores of materials for that history which are contained in foreign 
archives, there are three natural stages or processes. 

First, there is the summary survey or inventory, in which large masses of 
papers are represented by brief and often general descriptions, without much 
effort to enter into details respecting individual volumes or papers. 

A second stage is reached when, a summary survey of the contents of an 
archive having been already supplied, a certain portion or subdivision of it is 
selected for fuller description. The type of book usually produced by this 
procedure is that of the calendar, in which each separate letter or other docu- 
ment receives an entry of a line or more, indicating its date, place of origin, 
author, recipient, title, or such details, with perhaps some brief statement of 
its contents. 

The third stage of procedure is to select a set or series of documents having 
a high value for some particular purpose of history, and to print them at full 
length. 

It is not usually possible, in practice, to draw hard-and-fast lines between 
the first and the second of these varieties of procedure or of resulting hand- 
book. Many books descriptive of archival materials partake of both varieties, 
and English-speaking scholars have never agreed on any consistent or precise 
use of terms to designate the different kinds of guides or repertories. There 
is a broad and general distinction between the survey and the catalogue, but 
circumstances cause and justify the varying and the mingling of the types. 
For instance, some series of documents, steadily produced, year after year, 
by the routine of public administration, may be so uniform in character that 
they can be sufficiently described in a few lines applicable to all, and that 
nothing can be gained by doing more, while elsewhere in the same archive, or 
even in the same subdivision, chance may have brought together a mass of 
papers so diverse in origin and so miscellaneous in character that nothing 
short of an itemized list can have any value for the investigator, or would be 
thought of by an intelligent compiler.

iv Preface 

To an organized and endowed institution which approaches the task of 
exploiting foreign archives for purposes of American history, it is natural to 
begin with that process which is most fundamental, most extensive in scope, 
simplest, serviceable to the greatest number and variety of investigators. 
Therefore this Department of Historical Research undertook, first, to go the 
rounds of the great national archives of Europe, and of Canada and Mexico, 
sending qualified scholars to each to make summary surveys of what it contains 
of unprinted material for the history of America, or of the United States, and 
publishing the results in volumes the scale of which was roughly proportioned 
to the amount or importance of the material found in each repository. Thus, 
four large volumes, prepared by Professor Charles M. Andrews, Dr. Charles 
O. Paullin, Professor Frederic L. Paxson, and Dr. Frances G. Davenport, 
have exhibited to the American student, in brief but comprehensive survey, 
the manuscript treasures, for American history, of the archives of London. 
Two or three volumes on those of Paris are under preparation by Mr. Waldo 
G. Leland. Those of Germany have been treated, in a substantial volume, by 
Professor Marion D. Learned, those of Switzerland and Austria by Professor 
Albert B. Faust, those of Rome and other Italian capitals by Professor Carl 
R. Fish, those of Russia by Professor Frank A. Golder, those of Canada by 
Mr. David W. Parker, those of Mexico by Professor Herbert E. Bolton, those 
of Cuba by Mr. Luis M. Perez. A thorough examination of those of the 
Netherlands had been begun when the present great war opened ; and some 
preparations have been made for the examination of those of the Scandi- 
navian countries, Scotland, Ireland, and the West Indies. 

If Spain be added to this list, it will be seen that summary guides to 
American materials in at least the national or central archives have been 
published or undertaken in the case of nearly all those foreign countries whose 
history to any important extent touches that of North America, certainly of 
all those to which any parts of North America stood in a colonial relation, 
and which are therefore in an archival sense motherlands of its history. In 
the process of " first aid " we have in a dozen years nearly made the circuit, 
and have produced a series of volumes which, whatever the imperfections 
resulting from preparation in so short a period of time, have at any rate 
" served the present age " by making known to the existing generation of 
American historical scholars not less than a hundred thousand documents in 
foreign archives not hitherto known to their studies. It may fairly be thought 
appropriate and seasonable to turn now to the exploitation, on a larger scale 
and by a different method, of some outstanding portions of the mass. 

That for this fuller and minuter treatment, after some method falling under 
the second of the processes described above, choice should be made of some 
body of papers in the archives of Spain, is due to several reasons. In the 
first place, the Department's Guide to the Materials for the History of the 
United States in Spanish Archives (Washington, 1907), prepared by Pro- 



Preface v 

fessor William R. Shepherd in the earliest period of its operations, is the 
briefest of all its guides to foreign archives, a book of only 107 pages. Yet 
the three great Spanish archives which the book purports to cover — that of 
Simancas, the Archivo Historico Nacional at Madrid, and the Archives of the 
Indies at Seville — contain enormous quantities of valuable material for 
American history, certainly more than a million of documents, perhaps more 
than two millions, the natural product of colonial empire conducted upon a 
vast scale, with minute attention to detail, and by administrators trained to 
incessant writing. Colonial empires have sometimes won greater success 
with less use of the pen ; but, whatever the practical results may have been, 
historical investigators will not quarrel with the Spanish official's ceaseless 
accumulation of papers. Their main thought will be one of gratulation and 
contentment, that the system has left infinite riches of material to the present- 
day student. 

To this vast mass of material, moreover, American interest has been 
strongly directed of late. Since 1898 American students have entered as 
never before upon the study of Spanish-American history, of the relations 
between Spain and the United States, and of the history of those parts of our 
present area — the Louisiana territory, old Florida, California, and the South- 
west, a good third of the whole — which once were ruled by Spain. Historical 
societies and institutions in the states involved, historical departments in their 
universities — like the Department of Archives and History in the State of 
Mississippi, or the historical department of the University of California — 
have interested themselves in the exploitation of Spanish archives and have 
interested others in the history to which they contribute. That third of the 
United States that was once under Spain is well awakened to interest in its 
own past. One might fairly feel confident that a volume describing in detail 
an important portion of these treasures would be put to good use. Moreover, 
not only was this department's Guide but a meagre " first aid ", but Spain her- 
self has provided little guidance to her archives, few such volumes, for 
instance, as those of the British Calendars of State Papers ; and the materials 
derived from those archives which the Argentine and other American govern- 
ments have occasionally published bear little relation to the history of the 
United States. 

Among the various subdivisions of the various Spanish archives, it appeared 
that the one containing the greatest amount of material interesting to historical 
students in the United States was, with little question, that section of the 
Archives of the Indies at Seville entitled " Papeles procedentes de la Isla de 
Cuba ". Accordingly, this section, or that portion of it relating to United 
States history, was selected for fuller treatment, and Mr. Roscoe R. Hill, 
qualified by several years' study of Spanish-American history and several 
years' residence in a Spanish-speaking country, was sent to Seville in January, 
191 1, to carry out the undertaking. The first plan, framed before Mr. Hill 



vi Preface 

left America and when only very insufficient quantitative information respect- 
ing the " Papeles de Cuba " was available, looked toward the preparation of 
an itemized calendar of all the papers relating to the United States in that 
section ; but when it appeared, after examinations and estimates made upon 
the spot, that those papers numbered four or five hundred thousand, it was 
at once seen that such a proposal was entirely impracticable. No one could 
advocate the printing of fifty volumes of calendar of the " Papeles de Cuba " ; 
the present demands of scholarship do not warrant it. Instead, it was resolved 
that an ingenious plan devised by Mr. Hill should be followed, resulting in 
the present Descriptive Catalogue, which it is hoped conveys as much informa- 
tion regarding this great mass of papers from Cuba as can well be conveyed 
in five hundred pages. 

The volume is the product of two yea*s and four months of work in the 
Archives of the Indies, on the part of Mr. Hill and three or four clerical 
assistants, from January, 191 1, to April, 1913, and of much labor on his part 
in America since that date. But it is not the sole product of those years and 
months in Seville ; students who may wish for more detailed knowledge of 
the contents of these legajos (bundles) of papers will be glad to know that, 
though the preparation and printing of a complete calendar was deemed 
impracticable, itemized lists of all the papers in 143 legajos selected as the 
most important, amounting to a brief calendar of some 58,000 documents, 
were prepared in manuscript, in duplicate, by Mr. Hill and his assistants in 
Seville, and are preserved in the office of the Department in Washington. 
There the two sets stand arranged in serial and chronological order respec- 
tively, and can be consulted with freedom by historical scholars. 

The reader is referred to Mr. Hill's introduction for accounts of the 
Archives of the Indies, of the " Papeles de Cuba " in particular, of their 
history, of the present work, of the calendar mentioned above, and of the 
series of photographs of important documents which increase still further 
the means for studying American history through these Cuban papers. In- 
deed, every user of the volume is earnestly requested first to read Mr. Hill's 
explanatory introduction, that he may use the volume with an intelligent 
notion as to what it purports to contain. 

The index to the volume has been prepared by Mr. David M. Matteson, of 
Cambridge, Massachusetts. 

The director of the Department begs leave to add his cordial thanks to those 
which Mr. Hill has expressed, to all those who have facilitated or assisted 
the preparation of the work.

INTRODUCTION. 

The Archivo General de Indias (Archives of the Indies) 1 is one of the 
most important collections of materials for colonial history in existence. It 
comprises about 35,000 legajos (bundles), ranging in size from a few docu- 
ments or bound volumes to as many as 2000 documents each. They cover in 
general the whole Spanish colonial period, although the collection is far from 

'There is no work treating completely the Archivo de Indias. Numerous articles 
have appeared and some check-lists have been published, which serve to give an idea of 
the vastness and importance of the collection. The following bibliography gives the 
principal titles relating to the Archivo, but does not include any published collections of 
documents, of which there are many :

viii Introduction 

being complete, as many documents which really belong here are to be found 
in Simancas, in the Archivo Historico Nacional at Madrid, and elsewhere.' 
Orders have been given, however, which ultimately will bring about the 
removal to Seville of all the documents relating to the Spanish colonial 
activity. 

The Archivo occupies the Casa Lonja, a large rectangular building con- 
structed in the sixteenth century as a merchants' exchange, for those engaged 
in the India trade. The removal of the Casa de Contratacion to Cadiz and 
the break-up of the Spanish trade monopoly in the eighteenth century left the 
Lonja unoccupied. When the decision was made to found the Archivo de 
Indias, no more suitable building or location was available in Spain than the 
Casa Lonja in Seville. 

The Archivo de Indias owes its origin to a suggestion made by Juan 
Bautista Muiioz, who was commissioned in 1777 to write a Historic General 
de Indias.' Mufioz soon discovered the need of uniting the widely scattered 
documents relating to the history of America, and made the suggestion to 
the Marques de Sonora, at that time minister of the Indies, that they be 
gathered together in Seville. Accordingly Mufioz was commissioned in 1781 
by the king to select and prepare for shipment the documents in Simancas 
relating to America. Later he was empowered to investigate the papers of 
the Casa de Contratacion both in Seville and in Cadiz. Of his work of 
organization, which was largely completed by 1787, he has left an interesting 
report.* While the work of selecting the documents was in progress, the 
Lonja was remodelled to adapt it to archival uses. The papers in Simancas 
were inventoried and boxed in 1784-1785, and in the latter year were removed 
to Seville, being the first group of documents to be deposited in the new centre. 
This consignment, the only one from Simancas, consisted of 253 boxes which 
started from Simancas on September 20 and 21, in twenty-four carts, and 
arrived in Seville on October 15, under the guard of two commissioners and 
an armed escort.* 

Since that date additions have been made to the Archivo de Indias from 
time to time. At present the Archivo consists of materials as indicated in the 
table on page ix. 

The division of the documents into the twelve sections listed in this table 
was made with a view to preserving the identity of the origin in each case. 
In general, within the sections the papers are arranged topographically and 
chronologically, although in some instances they are divided by subjects as

The task of making indexes for this vast mass of documents has never been 
satisfactorily completed. There are manuscript inventories of greater or less 
merit for each of the sections.' The summary entries of these inventories

WORK IN THE ARCHIVO DE INDIAS. 
No formalities are really necessary to secure permission to work in the 
Archivo de Indias. Presentation to the Director by some one already work- 
ing there or by the American consul is in good form, or a letter from the 
American ambassador at Madrid or the Spanish ambassador in Washington

de Ibarra, 1790), reprinted in the Boletin del Instituto de Estudios Americanistas de 
Sevilla, afio I., num. 3 (Sept., 1913), pp. 29-47. The Ordenanzas are signed by the king 
and Antonio Porlier. They consist of 94 articles and contain rules for the organization 
and indexing of the papers, indicate the officials and their duties, and set forth regula- 
tions for cleaning, repairs, inspection, copies, loans, and prevention of fires.

x Introduction 

may be used as a means of introduction. Entry to the archives having been 
thus easily secured, a place is assigned to the investigator in the work-room, 
where he may carry on his studies unmolested. Since the whole of the Lonja 
has been turned over to the Archivo, numerous improvements have been made 
in the building, providing for more commodious working quarters than existed 
during and previous to the residence of the writer in Seville. 

In order to secure legajos for examination, it is necessary to fill out a 
papeleta de pedido (call slip) and present it to the official in charge. The 
legajo is brought to the desk of the investigator by an attendant. Before 
receiving another legajo the first must be returned to the attendant. 

One of the greatest difficulties that confronts the investigator in the Archivo 
de Indias is the fact that heretofore no record has been kept of previous inves- 
tigations. Neither is there in existence anything approaching a complete 
bibliography of the publications made of documents copied in the archives. 
These facts have resulted in much useless duplication of work by students. 
In order to obviate these difficulties and to provide a complete record of the 
various investigations carried on in the Archivo, a blank (cedula de resultado 
de investigation) has been devised to preserve a permanent record of the 
work of each investigator. The blank has spaces for date, name, and nation- 
ality of the investigator, subject of investigation, number of the legajo, title 
on legajo tag, copies made, object of work and use to be made of copies, and 
an extract of the subject matter. The following is the form of the blank :

The above blank is filled out in duplicate ; one copy is placed in the legajo 
and the other is filed in the office of the Director of the Archivo. The blanks 
of the latter set are numbered consecutively in chronological order by quarters. 
They are also classified topographically by subject matter and by the nation- 
ality of the investigator." 

PAPELES PROCEDENTES DE CUBA. 

Not the least important of the sections of the Archivo de Indias, and 
certainly the most valuable single collection deposited there relating to the 
history of the present area of the United States, is that denominated the 
" Papeles procedentes de la Isla de Cuba ". This collection comprises 2375 
legajos and about a million and a quarter individual documents. In accord- 
ance with the customary procedure in Spanish archival practice, these papers 
derive their name from the fact that for a considerable portion of the nine- 
teenth century they formed a part of the Archivo General de Cuba at Havana," 
and were removed thence to Seville. 

The decision to transfer this valuable mass of materials to Seville for 
deposit in the Archivo de Indias was first taken in 1883. The captain 
general was informed of this fact by a royal order of March 27, but no efforts 
were made to carry it out. The attention of the captain general was called 
to the failure to comply with the order by a second order dated January 8, 
1884." It was not until four years later, however, that the actual work of the 
transfer was begun." In response to the desires of the government at 
Madrid as expressed in the royal order of April 19, 1888, Nemesio Cornejo 
de Villarroel, an archivist and lawyer of Madrid, who at the time was in 
Havana, was commissioned to prepare the documents for shipment and send 
them to Spain. Within the period from June 25, 1888, to June 25, 1889, 
thirteen shipments of documents, comprising 2350 legajos, were made from 
Havana. The last shipment arrived in Seville October 28, 1889." 

The various shipments of the Papeles de Cuba to the Archivo de Indias 
were accompanied by check-lists," which Sr. Cornejo made by taking the first 
entries from the earlier inventories " existing in the Archivo General de

A study of the Papeles procedentes de Cuba shows that Havana was not 
the primary point of origin of many of the documents. Their organization 
reflects the Spanish archival practice which seeks to preserve the identity of 
the origin of the various groups of papers in any given centre. As a conse- 
quence the Papeles de Cuba are found to consist of 23 series, 22 of which were 
formed in Havana and have their own numeration. These series are now 
consolidated into one section of the Archivo de Indias and are renumbered 
Papeles de Cuba 1-2375. The following table shows the various series, their 
respective numerations, titles, primary origin, general content, and number 
of legajos containing materials for United States history :

To some extent the above series represent the various removals of docu- 
ments to Havana from Louisiana, Florida, and elsewhere. There is evidence, 
however, to show that there was considerable mixing of the different ship- 
ments after their arrival in the archives in Havana. 



FLORIDA OCCIDENTAL SERIES. 



In 1804, by orders " of the Spanish commissioners for the transfer of 
Louisiana, the commandants of the various posts of the province classified 
and inventoried the documents in their charge. Those relating to property, 
wills, marriages, and other personal interests of the inhabitants were prepared 
for transfer to the French and then to the United States."

Introduction xv 

These documents from the governor's office in New Orleans were removed 
to Pensacola during the years 1804 to 1806. So much delay was experienced 
in preparing them for transfer that the commandant of Pensacola, Vizente 
Folch, became impatient and insisted that they be sent at once in order to 
facilitate the business of his office." At the time of the arrival of this letter 
in New Orleans the major part of the documents was ready for shipment in 
care of Cayetano Valdes." 

Just when these papers were transferred has not been ascertained, but it is 
certain that a considerable portion were in Pensacola prior to October 5,

xvi Introduction 

1805.** Further, all documents which were retained by Spain were removed 
from New Orleans before the end of January, 1806, when all persons holding 
commissions from Spain were ordered by Governor Claiborne to leave the 
province." This removal explains the title Florida Occidental as applied to 
the papers from the office of the governor of Louisiana, since Pensacola 
was considered the place of origin when the documents were organized in 
Havana." 

LUISIANA SERIES. 

The papers of the Luisiana series (legajos 488-778), which originated in 
the various divisions of the department of Real Hacienda of Louisiana, in 
general were moved to Havana from New Orleans in 1804. In October of 
that year two shipments of papers were made on the frigate Nuestra Senora 
de las Nieves. One of these consisted of fifteen boxes, containing 147 legajos 
of documents from the Contaduria of New Orleans, which were sent to 
the Tribunal Superior y Real Audiencia de Cuentas de Habana." Generally 
these papers dated to 1798, though some few were as late as 1804. 

The other shipment comprised sixteen boxes of documents, dating to 1804, 
from the Administracion de Reales Rentas (Custom-house) of New Orleans, 
which were sent to the intendant of Havana." These boxes of papers were 
received by Captain Juan Portas on October 4," and delivered by him to the 
intendant of Havana, Rafael Gomez Rombaud, on November 13." 

In neither case did these shipments comprise the entire archive of the 
respective offices." Also it should be noted that some of these documents are 
to be found in the Nueva Orleans and Florida Occidental series. The remain- 
ing treasury papers were removed ultimately to Pensacola." 

The initiative for the transfer of the above-mentioned documents was taken 
by Juan Ventura Morales, acting intendant of Louisiana, and resulted in a 
very acrimonious dispute with the commissioner for the transfer of Louisiana,

Introduction xvii 

the Marques de Casa Calvo, as to the respective jurisdictions of the two 
officials. Morales held that he was acting in conformity with the order of 
November 31, 1803, issued by the secretary of the treasury, Cayetano Soler." 
On the other hand, Casa Calvo, basing his claim on the royal order of Decem- 
ber 18, 1803," was insistent that all matters appertaining to the transfer of 
Louisiana, including also the disposition of the archives, were subject to his 
jurisdiction alone.** The dispute waxed warm and lasted for a considerable 
time, but meanwhile the papers had gone on their way to Havana. 

The treasury papers left in New Orleans at this time were prepared for 
removal in 1805, upon the order of Morales." Before their arrival at their 
destination these papers suffered many vicissitudes and were the cause of a 
lively dispute between J. V. Morales and Vizente Folch, the commandant of 
Pensacola. 

These documents were packed in twenty-one boxes and shipped on the 
schooner Maria " with a naval escort. They were consigned to Juan Fran- 
cisco Arniaud de Courville, treasurer of Pensacola, with instructions that they 
should not be touched by anyone." At Pasa Christina the Maria and its escort 
were attacked by an English corsair, but escaped with little injury." 

Folch knew the disputatious character of Morales, and seems to have 
determined to prevent if possible the latter's arrival in Pensacola. Accord- 
ingly, on September 30 Folch offered Mobile as a residence for the officials 
of the intendancy and the fort there as a depository for the archives, as being 
the " only defensible fortification which the Province has "." Morales pro- 
tested against this determination of Folch and insisted that Pensacola was the 
more suitable location for the intendancy and its archives.* Both officials

xviii Introduction 

appealed to the captain general at Havana and to the secretary of Hacienda 
in Madrid. Meanwhile Folch took matters into his own hands and ordered 
that the twenty-one boxes should be disembarked at Mobile." This of course 
provoked a new protest from Morales. 4 * 

Upon this occasion at least Morales seems to have had the approval of his 
superiors with respect to his dispute. The Marques de Someruelos, the 
captain general, ordered Folch to allow Morales to reside in Pensacola and 
keep the archives of the commandancy there, as it seemed to be a safe place 
for them. 4 * In addition, Soler, the secretary of Hacienda, issued a royal order 
disapproving the action of Folch and ordering the removal of the papers to 
Pensacola. 44 Even to this high authority Folch made an evasive reply. He 
pointed out that the order had been issued under the misunderstanding that the 
documents had arrived in Pensacola and had been taken thence to Mobile, and 
insisted that he would leave the twenty-one boxes in Mobile. 4 * The papers 
ultimately found their way to Pensacola. Morales, however, did not succeed 
in taking them with him, for he was already in Pensacola early in 1806,* 5 long 
before the above-mentioned resolution of Folch. Just when they were re- 
moved is not certain, but it is known that they arrived some time before the 
close of the administration of Mateo Gonzalez Manrique as commandant of 
Pensacola (1813-1815). 4 ' 

An echo of the final difficulties of Folch and Morales regarding the archives 
is found in a royal order of September 24, 1807, in which Folch is ordered to 
turn over to Morales, at once, such papers and expedientes relating to the 
department of Hacienda as properly belonged to the intendancy. 4 * 

REMOVALS FROM PENSACOLA TO HAVANA. 

The papers belonging to the various offices in Pensacola, which either 
originated there or were removed thither, were taken to Havana at different 
times. In 1808 General James Wilkinson had become fearful, because of

attacks which were being made upon him, 4 * that something regarding his 
traitorous relations with Spain might leak out of the Spanish archives at 
Pensacola. He communicated his fears to Commandant Folch, who assured 
him that 

I believe that you are already well convinced that I have acted in a manner 
befitting a faithful servant of the honorable Spanish Monarchy and that I 
have fulfilled sincerely the duties which friendship imposes upon me. I have 
even done more, since I have sent to the Archives of Havana all that pertains 
to the previous (antigua) history (a) feeling sure that before the United 
States shall be in position to conquer that capital, you and I, Jefferson, Madi- 
son, with all the secretaries of the different departments, and even the Prophet 
Daniel (b) himself will have made many day's journeys on the voyage to the 
other world." 

Just how many or what documents were transferred at this time is not known, 
as no inventory was discovered, and after the removal these were put in their 
rightful place in the Florida Occidental series, along with the other papers 
from the archive of the governor of Louisiana. 

In the early morning of November 8, 1811, a fire occurred in the house of 
Juan Francisco Arniaud de Courville, treasurer at Pensacola, which destroyed 
the papers of that office." This created what is perhaps the most extensive 
lacuna in the Papeles de Cuba. 

For purposes of auditing, documents were sent by the treasury officials of 
Louisiana and West Florida to the Tribunal de Cuentas and the intendant of 
Havana, at various times. Sufficient data to give a list of such transmissions 
are not available. Such a shipment was made on July 12, 1812, when 36

ana for 1802-1805 and of the office for the conclusion of the affairs of 
Louisiana for 1806-1811, were sent to the Tribunal de Cuentas in Havana in 
two boxes, numbered 19 and 20, on the packet-boat San Francisco de Borja." 
One of the latest shipments of this kind was made early in 181 7, when eight 
boxes of papers were sent from the secretariat of the intendancy at Pensacola 
to Havana, two boxes on the schooner San Luguena and six on the schooner 
Maria." 

Several transfers of papers relating to Louisiana and West Florida took 
place in 1818. In February of that year, J. V. Morales deposited in the 
intendancy of Havana certain important documents, relating especially to 
his conflicts with other officials, which he had retained in his possession after 
the close of his administration as acting intendant of West Florida." Pre- 
sumably on account of the disturbed conditions in Florida, in May, 1818, the 
archives of San Marcos de Apalache were deposited in the secretariat of the 
commandant of Pensacola." 

The transfer of the major portion of the documents from Pensacola to 
Havana took place in the years 1818-1819. In the former year General 
Andrew Jackson seized Pensacola, and the fifth of the proposals of Comman- 
dant Jose Masot dealt with the subject of the transfer of the archives to 
Havana, in the following terms : 

A competent number of vessels shall be furnished for embarking personal 
effects, papers, and other property belonging to the commandant, officers, and 
others in the royal employ, and particularly the papers of the secretary's office 
of the government existing in Pensacola, those of the department of royal 
finance, and of the civil and military employs. These papers shall not be 
subjected to any inspection or recognizance under the pledge of their con- 
taining nothing foreign to the functions of the said persons. Approved, — 
and estimate of the necessary transportation to be furnished agreeably to 
established usage." 

On the following day, May 29, in a proclamation to the citizens, General 
Jackson stated that " Col. King will take possession of the archeyes (sic) of 
the province and appoint some confidential individual to preserve them. It 
is all important that the records of titles and property should be carefully 
secured." "

Introduction xxi 

In accordance with this arrangement at least two shipments of papers were 
made. When Masot departed for Havana on June 22 on the schooner Peggy, 
he took with him seventeen boxes of papers from the offices of the comman- 
dancy and of the treasury. The Peggy encountered extremely bad weather 
and was compelled to put in at Puerto de Sisal (Campeche) ." On August 24, 
Masot started from Campeche with the schooner Peggy and the sloop 
Washington. Calms and contrary winds were encountered and the vessels 
became separated. On September 8, the Peggy, which carried Masot and the 
papers, was attacked and captured by the corsair General Umber (Humbert) , 
under the command of Captain Francisco Ruperto of Buenos Aires. The 
vessel was sacked, the boxes of documents were broken open, and Masot 
claimed that many of the papers were thrown into the water." The Peggy 
was forced to return to Campeche, where it was found that she was incapable 
of continuing the voyage." 

The boxes of papers were deposited for safe-keeping in the custom-house 
at Campeche, and it was pointed out that, on account of the dangers of naviga- 
tion, it would be advisable for a war vessel to be sent to transfer the documents 
to Havana." Following out this suggestion, Captain General Cienfuegos 
dispatched his Majesty's schooner the Galga to secure the papers, on January 
13, 1819, and the seventeen boxes were again embarked thereon, January 
24." A few days later, they were in Havana. 

In a letter to J. G. Forbes, Nicolas Mahy, captain general of Cuba, stated 
that " in the year 181 9, there were sent to Havana from West Florida various 
boxes of papers of the archives of that province, in disorder and without 
indexes ".** This condition of things can easily be accounted for by the haste 
in packing and the vicissitudes which the papers suffered during the passage. 

The second transfer of papers in conformity with the agreement of Jackson 
and Masot took place in August, 1818. On the 21st of that month, fifteen 
boxes and a trunk of documents were embarked on the American schooner 

"Letter of Masot to Cienfuegos, July 31, 1818, legajo 1877. 

" This statement of Masot respecting the loss of papers seems to be an exaggeration, 
as the seventeen boxes were still present after the attack, and the examination of the 
Papeles de Cuba has revealed no important lacuna ascribable to this occasion. J. G. 
Forbes, however, in a letter to J. Q. Adams, dated May 5, 1821, reported that the Spanish 
officials in Havana had informed him " that about ten boxes containing the records of 
grants of land in West Florida were taken by an insurgent privateer out of the vessel in 
which Governor Masot was a passenger from Pensacola ". (American State Papers, 
Foreign Relations, IV. 743; Perez, Guide to Cuban Archives, p. 76.) This statement, 
which is evidently false, was made in an effort to put an end to the persistence of Forbes 
in his endeavor to secure documents from the archives in Havana.

Sally." These documents arrived in Havana on October 31, 1818." The two 
above-mentioned consignments of papers were not returned to Pensacola upon 
the reoccupation of that city by the Spaniards." 

The second article of the treaty between the United States and Spain 
(February 2, 1819) for the cession of the Floridas provided that "His 
Catholic Majesty cedes .... archives and documents, which relate directly 

to the property and sovereignty of said provinces The said archives 

and documents shall be left in possession of the commissioners or officers of 
the United States duly authorized to receive them." " Despite this provision, 
it was many years before any documents were obtained from among the West 
Florida papers which were in Havana at the time of the cession. Repeated 
efforts on the part of the United States commissioner," the protests of the 
Secretary of State to the Spanish minister, and the message of President 
Monroe of December 3, 1821, complaining of the failure to transfer the docu- 
ments, 1 " failed to elicit any other reply than that the papers in question had 
been lost in transit. Some investigation, however, of the Florida papers was 
made by the Spanish officials at this time." 

As a matter of fact Spain was not desirous that anyone from the United 
States should examine the Louisiana-West Florida documents. The Spanish 
consul at New Orleans, while recommending an individual of that city who 
desired to search for land titles, advised the officials at Havana that all pos- 
sible hindrances should be placed in his way, hinting that things might be 
brought to light which would cause a decidedly unpleasant feeling on the part 
of the United States. 71 An investigation of the documents which were then in 
Havana reveals only too well the mass of material which Spain desired should 
not be known to the United States. Finally, however, in 1835, N. P. Trist 
was allowed to select, under what restrictions it is not known, certain papers 
which were delivered to him and which he in turn sent to Washington. A 
portion of these documents is now in the Library of Congress.™

FLORIDA ORIENTAL PAPERS. 

As to the archives of East Florida, they remained in St. Augustine up to 
the time of the transfer to the United States," except such papers of the 
treasury department as were transmitted to the intendancy and Tribunal de 
Cuentas in Havana, from time to time, according to the administrative pro- 
cedure.™ Immediately after the transfer of Florida to the United States, the 
treasury documents were removed to Havana.™ 

The archive of the office of the governor of East Florida was turned over 
in its entirety to the United States government, and consequently no papers 
from that office were found among the Papeles de Cuba. This archive was 
placed in charge of the United States Land Office and suffered many years of 
neglect. Finally in 1905 these papers were discovered by the Librarian of 
Congress, and arrangements were made to have them deposited in the Library 
of Congress, where they are now to be found."

"These papers with those transmitted previously are largely found in the Florida 
Oriental series, see pp. xii, xiii. above. 

The following account of these papers is found in the Report of the Librarian of 
Congress for 1905, pp. 49-50 : " In my report for 1904 I described the status of the 
Spanish papers sent to the Library from New Mexico. Learning of a quantity of 
similar records in the office of the United States surveyor general in Tallahassee, Fla., 
the Department of the Interior was asked if there were any obstacles to depositing them 
in the Library for arrangement and safe keeping. The Department not only accepted 
the suggestion, but further stated that it would be of public advantage if the deposit 
were made a permanent one, providing always that no papers relating to land titles 
should be so retained. Under this condition the papers were sent to the Library, and 
the permanent deposit will permit the institution to treat it in the same manner as its 
other collections are treated before they are made available for historical ends. The 
task of arranging, repairing, mounting, indexing, and binding will be undertaken in due 
season. The papers number 62.224 pieces, with some volumes bound under the Spanish 
rule. The number of papers in the volumes can hardly be determined as they now are, 
as the polilla busily bored through and through an entire volume, and even the parch- 
ment covers, until a sheet looks like a bit of lace work. The damage thus done is in 
some cases irreparable, and forcibly illustrates the risks and dangers attending the care 
and preservation of manuscripts in semi-tropical or tropical climates where a rainy- 
season and heat favor the development of these destructive pests. 

" The nature of this collection of Spanish documents may be seen from the following 
selected list, taken from the labels of the bundles, of which there were 372 in all : 

1. Correspondence with British authorities. 

2. Councils of war, royal regulations and orders, etc. 

3. Documents of the delivery of East Florida to the United States. 

4. Embargo and revolution of 1795. 

5. Indian presents. 

6. Louisiana, Pensacola, Apalache, and Indians. 

7. Memorials and concessions. 

8. Negro titles, runaways, etc 

9. Oaths of allegiance. 

10. Plans of fortifications and public buildings. 

11. Proclamations, edicts, etc. 

12. Secret correspondence of captain general [governor], and a large quantity of the 

correspondence of the captain general [governor] with the home govern- 
ment, the viceroy of Mexico, and his subordinate officers." 



xxiv Introduction 

PAPELES DE CUBA IN THE AKCHIVO DE INDIAS. 

Upon arrival in Seville, the Papeles de Cuba were placed on boxes in one 
of the galleries of the second floor of the Lonja. Soon it was discovered that 
they were infested with polilla (Calymmaderus oblongus, Gorham), and they 
were considered a menace to the other papers of the Archive They were 
hurriedly removed to the outer corridor and given a treatment with benzine. 
Then they were stored in a room on the first floor, where they remained much 
neglected for two decades. Since the remodelling of the Lonja in 1913, a 
more suitable place has been provided for this collection. 

It has been stated that the documents of this section of the Archivo " are 
now dropping slowly to pieces, the prey of moths and mildew ". n An extended 
examination fails to confirm this conclusion. As for the destructive tropical 
insects, let it be said that the benzine treatment combined with the climate has 
eradicated them. Among a thousand legajos handled, there were only eight 
which were completely useless and less than a score which were damaged to 
any great extent. No live polilla or evidences of recent activity were noted. 
Further, Dr. Giovanni Bolle, of the Agricultural Experiment Station at Gbrz, 
Austria, a specialist in insects injurious to books, was unable during his visit 
to the Archivo in 191 1 to get any live specimens. 

There are some few volumes and documents which are badly damaged from 
having the paper eaten by ink or from rough handling. It is safe, however, 
to say that very few documents have been lost from this collection since its 
removal to Seville. Further, there is no reason why many should be de- 
stroyed in the future, as the Archivo de Indias possesses excellent climatic 
conditions, and danger from fire or other damage is practically absent. 

CARNEGIE INSTITUTION MISSION TO SEVILLE. 

During the long period of neglect, sufficient work was done among the 
Papeles de Cuba to show their great importance.™ In view of the value of 
these papers, the writer was sent to Seville on a mission for the Carnegie 
Institution of Washington to investigate and report on them. The mission 
resulted in a residence of over two years in Seville, January, 191 1, to March, 
1913, inclusive, during which his attention was given exclusively to this 
collection. 

The original plan of the mission provided for the making of a calendar of 
the more important documents of the Papeles de Cuba relating to the history 
of the United States. Upon undertaking this task its impracticability was 
soon revealed. The great mass of legajos, the extraordinary number of 
documents in each, the impossibility of determining which were the most

Wilkinson. See p. xxvi, below.

valuable, and the uncertainty as to the value of the Havana index and check- 
list, were the factors that brought about a change in the plan of work. To 
have continued on the original plan would have resulted in the calendaring of 
only from twenty-five to fifty legajos, and there would have been no assurance 
that the most important papers had been made available to students. After 
careful consideration the plan of the present volume was worked out. The 
result of the work is this Descriptive Catalogue of the Papeles de Cuba, 
which is intended to serve as an introduction to this valuable mass of records. 

ORGANIZATION OF THE PAPERS. 

The Papeles de Cuba received their present organization in 1856- 1857, 
when they were prepared for transfer to the newly formed Archivo General 
de Cuba." At this time and in 1876, indexes " of these documents were made, 
which are now in the Archivo Nacional de Cuba. The first, begun in 1856 and 
completed in 1868-1869, is composed of twenty-one separate inventories, num- 
bered from 1 to 21, each corresponding to an administration of the captains 
general from 1765 to 1840, together with inventories of the papers relating to 
Cartagena de Indias and Nuevo Reino de Granada. This index covers the 
papers in the Capitanes Generales series " (legajos 1049-2264), Cartagena de 
Indias (legajos 707-738), and Nuevo Reino de Granada (legajos 739-757). 
This index was supplanted by the index of 1876, which consists of a bound 
volume, entitled " Archivo General de la Isla de Cuba — Indice 2° ". It has 
340 pages and contains the description of 1497 legajos of the Papeles de Cuba. 
It covers the following series: Capitanes Generales (legajos 1049-2264), 
Florida Occidental (legajos 1-227), 63 legajos from series nos. 6 to n (lega- 
jos 707-915), and Castillo del Morro (legajos 916-920)." The index of 1876 
was very carefully made, and with one exception it corresponds exactly to the 
legajos described. This exception to its exactness is in the case of the Florida 
Occidental series (legajos 1-227), and is not the fault of the index or its 
maker, but is due to the later disturbance of some of the papers or possibly 
to the use of an older index made before the papers were disorganized. It 
should be added that in general the entries in the case of the Florida Occi- 
dental series are exact, the misplacement being of parts of the legajos only. 
The entries of this index have been used as headings for the descriptions in 
the Descriptive Catalogue." 

" This archive was established and organized in conformity with a royal order of 
Oct. 31, 1857. See Llaverias, Hisioria de los Archivos de Cuba, pp. 96-99, which gives 
an account of the establishment and reprints the order. 

M There are many other earlier indexes and inventories of portions of this collection. 
Except for historical purposes these indexes are of little value, as the documents have 
been reorganized since they were made. A list of these indexes and inventories is, 
however, appended to this introduction. 

" See table, p. xiii, above. 

" Letter of L. M. Perez to J. F. Jameson, Dec. 20, 1910. 

** It is interesting to note that Llaverias in his Htstoria de los Archivos de Cuba 
makes no mention of either of these indexes of the Papeles de Cuba. 



xxvi Introduction 

When the documents were removed to Spain in 1888- 1889, neither of these 
indexes was sent with them, but instead they were accompanied by the check- 
lists made by Sr. Cornejo." The manner in which these check-lists were 
made resulted in an indefiniteness which cast a suspicion upon their value. 
Moreover, on account of their incompleteness, they did not afford a sufficient 
guide to the papers, nor in the nature of the case was the check-list or either of 
the Havana indexes adequate for the portion of the papers relating to the 
United States. 

As may be seen from the table given on pages xii, xiii, above, the Papeles de 
Cuba are divided into various series based on topography. Within these 
series a chronological arrangement combined with classification by officials 
or official positions is used. The plan is satisfactory where strictly adhered 
to, as it is in most cases. 

The documents relating to the United States are duplicated in different 
forms in many instances, because the archives of the provinces of Louisiana 
and West Florida are here combined with those of the captaincy general of 
Cuba, which had supervisory power over these provinces.* 6 

The Papeles de Cuba have suffered little modification in arrangement since 
their removal to Seville. Owing to the fact that the documents were con- 
sidered to be in complete disorder," some 5300 individual documents were 
removed from their legajos by Sr. Gonzalez Verger and Professor Shepherd. 
About 500 of these documents have since been returned to their proper 
legajos ; the remainder form legajos 2351 to 2375 inclusive. Those in legajos 
2351 to 2356 have been copied for the Department of Archives and History, 
Jackson, Mississippi, and are listed in Robertson, List of Documents in 
Spanish Archives relating to the History of the United States." Many of the 
papers of legajos 2357-2375 were removed for this same purpose, but the 
commission was never carried out. The remaining documents of these latter 
legajos were copied for Mr. Louis Houck of St. Louis * and Professor W. R. 
Shepherd. These documents are now arranged in chronological order within 
the several legajos, and with the exception of the last three legajos have been 
calendared for the Carnegie Institution of Washington. 

The impression that these papers were in complete disorder might have 
been gained from an inspection of the Florida Occidental series (legajos 
1-227). As a matter of fact, however, the greater portion of the legajos 
relating to the United States are in good order. Of the 954 legajos examined,

only 251 are in a disordered condition, and of these 198 belong to the Florida 
Occidental series." 

It appears evident that the Papeles de Cuba were all in order during some 
period of their deposit in Havana. Two hypotheses are offered to explain 
the present disorder of part of the legajos. First, that they were all placed 
in order at the time of the reorganization of the archives in 1856 and that 
the disorder is due to careless handling between that time and their removal 
to Spain, for it is certain that the legajos now disordered were in about their 
present condition when they arrived in Seville. Secondly, that in 1856 the 
legajos were left as found and that the disorder was the result of careless 
handling or investigation during the period when the United States was 
making demands for the transfer of certain documents from the collection. 
With time and patience even the most disordered of the legajos of the collec- 
tion could be rearranged on the basis of the Havana classification. This 
would to some extent vitiate the work of this report, but if the disordered 
legajos could ever be put in order, it would, of course, be a great improve- 
ment. The likelihood of such a task ever being undertaken, however, is 
very remote. 

ARRANGEMENT OF THE PAPERS. 

The Papeles de Cuba are arranged in legajos (bundles), either in the size 
of the Spanish pliego (21.5 by 31.5 cm.), of the Spanish cuartillo (16 by 21.5 
cm.), or of what seems to be an English or American paper ( 18.5 by 2$ cm.). 
The height of the legajo varies with the number of documents. In the 
pliego size (indicated in the descriptions by the letter A) are found the 
treasury documents, some of the correspondence in the Florida Occidental 
series, and some other documents. In the cuartillo size (indicated by the 
letter B) are the drafts of the governors of Louisiana and most of the corre- 
spondence of the local officials of Louisiana and the Floridas. Most of the 
original letters in the Capitanes Generates series are in pliego size folded once 

"The following table shows the total present number of legajos containing materials 
relating to the United States and the number of disordered legajos in each series:

to the cuartillo, while the drafts are all of the latter size. The third size (indi- 
cated by the letter C) includes the correspondence in French and English by 
the local officials of Louisiana and others, which is found in a group of 
legajos in the Florida Occidental series, entitled " Correspondencia Nacional 
y Extrangera ". 

The legajos are unwrapped, with the exception of a few hundred of the 
Capitanes Generales series which are in sheep cases. The only protection is a 
piece of cardboard, at the top and bottom of the legajo, which often is not as 
large as the papers. This is insufficient to protect against rough usage, dust, 
and dirt. Let it be said, however, that the legajos now receive careful hand- 
ling from the employees of the archive. 

COMPLETENESS OF THE COLLECTION. 

Just how many documents have been lost from the Papeles de Cuba during 
the past century, it is hard to say. It is sufficiently evident, however, that 
very few have disappeared from the documents dating from about 1760. 
Documents before that date are rare, and the legajos relating to the United 
States covering periods before that time are mostly useless. 

Many series of documents relating to Louisiana and the Floridas are 
complete. Among these may be mentioned treasury reports, correspondence 
of the governors and intendants of Louisiana, etc. The archive of the cap- 
taincy general is intact, as is shown by the various numbered series of corre- 
spondence of that office with the governors of Louisiana and East Florida 
and the commandants of Pensacola." 

" The following table gives a list of some of the important complete series of docu- 
ments from the various series of the Papeles de Cuba :

RESULTS OF THE MISSION. 

In all, 928 original legajos, containing materials relating to the United 
States, were found and examined. Only one legajo (561) relating to the 
United States was missing. The great reliability of the Havana index and 
the examination of many legajos, not relating to the United States, brings the 
conclusion that all the United States material in the Papeles de Cuba was 
located and described. Eight legajos " were found to be completely useless, 
and some others partially damaged." On account of the extraordinary size 
of many of the legajos, the writer was asked by the Chief of the Archive to 
divide them into two or more parts,*' so that the present number of legajos 
relating to the United States is 954, of which eight are useless and one is 
missing, leaving a net total of 945. Sixty-five of these legajos are composed 
entirely of books, and ninety contain one or two volumes, in addition to the 
documents. 

There is an estimated total of 472,743 documents and 461 account and 
letter books in the 945 legajos. This gives an average of 554 documents per 
legajo, including the 65 containing only books, or an average of 500 docu- 
ments, if the latter are included and each book is counted as a single document. 
The number of separate documents would be materially increased if the dupli- 
cates occurring in the same legajo were counted, which was not done in the 
Capitanes Generales series and in the treasury documents. A small deduction 
should also be made for certain legajos where only a portion of the documents 
relates to the United States." 

In giving the number of documents in the descriptions, the exact number is 
indicated in the case of the 143 listed legajos (see below), those calendared 
in this work, and many containing treasury papers. In the other legajos the 
estimate was based on the character of the papers and the height of the legajo, 
and for this reason the height is given in each case as well as the estimated 
number of documents. 

CHARACTER OF THE DESCRIPTIONS. 

The descriptions of the legajos given in this volume fall into two general 
classes, each of which in turn comprises two divisions. The first class includes 
all those legajos for which only general descriptions as to scope and con- 
tent are given. In this class the descriptions are arranged uniformly in this 
order : ( 1 ) the heading as given in the Havana index, with corrected dates 
in brackets, (2) a statement of the period covered by the legajo and its 
arrangement and order, (3) a list of the correspondents, and (4) an indica- 

■ Legajos 445, 446, 450, 452, 453, 454, 455, 461, all dated prior to 1760. 

" These are noted in the descriptions. 

"The parts are numbered as follows, e. g., 154-1, 154-2, 154-3; and are separately 
described. 

"These legajos occur entirely in the Capitanes Generales series, e. g., legajos 1309, 
1368, 1408, 1418, 1511, etc.

tion of the subjects treated and important documents found in the legajo. 
The first division of this class comprises the legajos of correspondence, mostly 
in disorder, between the governors of Louisiana and their subordinates 
(legajos 1-227), as well as other similar legajos throughout the collection. 
The second division consists of the well-ordered legajos of the Capitanes 
Generales series and others, in which the letters are numbered ; many of these 
legajos have been listed. 9 " 

The second class includes the legajos for which the descriptions are not 
merely general, but are complete in the form of an actual or practical calendar. 
The definitive work of description is done in this volume for this class, making 
the documents readily available to the historical investigator. In general the 
descriptions of these legajos consist of: (i) the Havana heading, (2) a 
statement of the scope and arrangement of the legajo, and (3) an indication, 
in form of calendar or otherwise, of the content. The first division of this 
class includes the accounts of the treasuries, intendancies, and reales alma- 
cenes, and the listas de revista and other similar and well-ordered documents. 
The second division is composed of expedientes, letter and account books, and 
indexes. This latter division is fully calendared in all cases. 

The following table shows the number of legajos in the various classes 
indicated above :

Of the 532 legajos of the first class, 143, selected as most deserving such 
fuller treatment, were calendared or listed by clerks under the direction of 
the writer, and the calendar slips are now in the office of the Department of 
Historical Research of the Carnegie Institution of Washington. In general 
the subject matter for these slips was obtained by copying the summary or 
abstract of the document, which was usually written on the margin or the 
carpeta (folder). As it was required by law that only one subject be treated 
in a letter," and as the abstracts were to facilitate the labor of the recipient 
of the letters, they are found to be exact and to give a satisfactory idea of the 
document. In some cases, however, where the abstracts were not present, 
the clerks, after proper training, were permitted to make summaries. In all, 

"For example, legajos 1561-1572.

Introduction xxxi 

about 57,000 documents have been listed in this form. The 143 legajos that 
have been calendared are indicated by the word " Listed " at the end of the 
description. These slips serve as a complete guide to, and show the value of, 
the documents of this group of legajos. A test made indicates that about 70 
per cent, of the entries of documents would be suitable for inclusion in a pub- 
lished calendar, if such should ever be made from the slips. Meanwhile, 
whatever information they contain is at the service of historical investigators, 
on application to the Director of the Department of Historical Research 
named above. 

In addition to the work of describing and calendaring, a series of 233 
photographs was made. These photographs include documents of especial 
interest illustrative of the character of the papers and present a miscellaneous 
series of autographs of the various Spanish officials connected with the 
administration of Louisiana and the Floridas." 

CONTENT OF THE PAPELES DE CUBA. 

The portion of the Papeles de Cuba which relates to the United States 
contains documents treating the various phases of the Spanish administration 
in Louisiana and the Floridas and covering in general the period from 1761 to 
1 821, although there are some few documents both before and after these 
dates. Among the subjects treated are the political history of the region, both 
internal and external, including especially the relations with the United States 
and the Indian problem, finances, military, social and religious matters, immi- 
gration, and the super-imposition of the Spanish system of administration 
upon the French system in Louisiana. 

The Florida Occidental series (legajos 1-227) contains correspondence of 
the governors of Louisiana with their subordinates, with the captains general 
of Cuba, the ministers of the Indies, the viceroys of New Spain, the bishops 
of Louisiana, and the consuls of Spain in the United States ; correspondence 
of the commandants of Pensacola, intendants of Louisiana, and commandants 
of Mobile ; expedientes in civil, criminal, and military cases ; reales cedulas 
and despachos ; and indexes and letter-books. The Florida Occidental series 
(legajos 228-282) comprises correspondence of the intendants of Louisiana 
and West Florida ; accounts of the treasury and real almacen of Pensacola, 
office for the conclusion of the affairs of Louisiana, treasury of Nogales, and 
hospital at Pensacola ; ajustamientos and listas de revista of troops and mili- 
tia at Pensacola and Apalache ; and treasury expedientes of New Orleans and 
Pensacola. 

" A set of these photographs may be secured from the Carnegie Institution of Wash- 
ington for the cost of production. Since the writer's return from Spain a larger series 
of photographs, 3000 plates or pages in all, embracing the regular series of despatches 
from the governor of Louisiana to the captain general of Cuba, from 1766 to 1791 
inclusive, has been carefully made by the Institution, in ten sets, for sale to libraries in 
the United States. 



xxxii Introduction 

The Florida Oriental series (legajos 283-487) includes accounts of the 
treasury, real almacen, and hospital of St. Augustine ; listas de revista, ajusta- 
mientos, etc., of troops at St. Augustine ; correspondence of the contadores 
of St. Augustine ; accounts of officials at San Vicente Ferrer, San Juan, and 
Isla Amalia; registros de entrada y salida (records of imports and exports) 
of St. Augustine; asientos (records) of employees; documents regarding 
Floridianos (Spanish settlers of Florida who were removed to Cuba when 
Florida was ceded to England in 1763) ; and treasury expedientes of St. 
Augustine, New Orleans, and Pensacola. 

The Luisiana series (legajos 488-668) contains accounts of the treasury,

treasury and real almacen of New Orleans ; accounts of the reales almacenes 
of Mobile, Placaminas, Baton Rouge, and Pensacola; treasury expedientes 
of New Orleans; and correspondence of the intendants and contadores of

Legajos 772 and 830, which are placed in wrong series, contain accounts of 
the guardas almacenes of Placaminas and Natchez respectively. 

The legajos in the Capitanes Generales series (legajos 1049-2264), relating 
to the United States, comprise correspondence of the captains general of Cuba 
with the governors of Louisiana and Florida, the commandants of Pensacola, 
the intendants of Louisiana and West Florida, bishops of Louisiana, Spanish 
agents, ministers and consuls in the United States, commandants of Mobile, 
commandant of the Army of Operation of 1781-1782, ministers in Spain 
(War, Hacienda, Indies, State, and Grace and Justice), and various officials 
in the United States. 

The Luisiana series (legajos 2317-2321), the Florida Oriental series 
(legajos 2322-2327), the Florida Occidental series (legajos 2328-2334), and 
the Varios series (legajos 2335-2346) are continuations of the several series 
in legajos 1-706, and contain similar materials. Legajos 2351-2375, which 
were made in the Archivo de Indias from papers removed from the Florida 
Occidental series (legajos 1-227), comprise miscellaneous correspondence

and other documents of the same character as the series from which they 
were removed. 

VALUE AND EXPLOITATION OF THE PAPELES DE CUBA. 

From the indication given above, the value of the Papeles de Cuba for that 
portion of the United States which was formerly Spanish Louisiana and the 
Floridas is clearly manifest. A relatively small amount of use has been made 
of this collection on account of its inaccessibility. Mention has been made of 
the documents copied for the Department of Archives and History, Jack- 
son, Mississippi, and for Mr. Houck and Professor Shepherd. Professor 
I. J. Cox, of the University of Cincinnati, has made investigation of these 
papers, basing his work upon the notes for this volume, and has published 
some of the results." The writer secured copies of many Mezieres docu- 
ments for Professor Herbert E. Bolton, of the University of California, 1 ** and 
had an extensive series of notes upon the commerce of Louisiana taken for 
Professor Edward Channing, of Harvard University. On the whole, how- 
ever, the Papeles de Cuba present a virgin field for investigation, and it is 
hoped that this Descriptive Catalogue may be useful in placing the documents 
at the service of future investigators. 

OBSERVATIONS. 

The order pursued in describing the legajos has been indicated above 
(p. xxix). In cases where inclusive dates are given for a series of letters 
which are accompanied by drafts of replies, the dates of the drafts often 
extend either before or after the dates of the original letters. When in the 
series numeration a smaller number follows a larger, it is due to the fact that 
more than one numeration was used and the numbers are given in chrono- 
logical order. 

All the documents described in this volume are in Spanish except where 
otherwise indicated. As a knowledge of Spanish is necessary to anyone 
studying the Papeles de Cuba, the original Spanish titles of documents are 
given where possible, as being more exact than translations. Where both 
Spanish and French forms of names of places were used, the form used in 
any given instance is retained in the descriptions. In the case of New 
Orleans, Pensacola, and St. Louis, however, the Anglicized form is used in 

" The following titles are based in part upon documents from the Papeles de Cuba : 
"The Louisiana-Texas Frontier", part II., in the Southwestern Historical Quarterly, 
XVII. (1913). 1-42, 140-187; "General Wilkinson and his Later Intrigues with the 
Spaniards", in the American Historical Review, XIX. 794-812; "Wilkinson's First 
Break with the Spaniards", in Eighth Annual Report of the Ohio Valley Historical 
Association (1915), printed in the Biennial Report of the Department of Archives and 
History of the State of West Virginia, 1911-1912, 1913-1914 (Charleston, W. Va., 1915), 
pp. 49-56; West Florida, 1798-1813: a Study in American Frontier Diplomacy (Balti- 
more, in press).

Catalogue.

all cases except where they occur in titles of documents, and then the form 
in the document is retained. The names of persons are given in the form or 
forms used by the individual. Obvious misspellings, especially of personal 
names by other than the individual himself, have been eliminated. 

The lists of correspondents in the descriptions are, in general, arranged in 
chronological or alphabetical order, or in a combination of both. In many 
legajos, it was found more convenient to make groups according to the prin- 
cipal correspondents, within which the chronological and alphabetical order 
is observed. The names of Joseph Vazquez Vahamonde and Vicente Fer- 
nandez Texeiro or Texeyro require special notice. Their proper alphabetiza- 
tion is Vazquez and Fernandez, respectively, but as they were known quite 
generally as Vahamonde and Texeiro, the patronymics have frequently been 
omitted and they have in these instances been alphabetized as Vahamonde 
and Texeiro. 

The common form of the Spanish abbreviations in these documents was 
made by writing the first part of the word and then placing the last two or 
three letters in a raised position, e. g., Haz da , hazienda; R" R ta8 , Reales 
Rentas; S or , Senor, etc. These raised letters have uniformly been brought 
down to a level with the remainder and a period placed after the abbreviation. 
This is the only change made in titles given as in the original. 

The writer wishes to express his thanks to His Excellency Don Juan Riano 

y Gayangos, Spanish minister to the United States, for several letters of 

introduction ; to the Honorable Charles S. Winans, formerly American consul 

at Seville, for his many favors ; to Sr. Dn. Pedro Torres Lanzas and Sr. Dn. 

Jose Gonzalez Verger, the latter now deceased, chief and assistant chief of the 

Archivo de Indias, for their continued courtesies and assistance ; and to the 

other employees of the Archivo for their courteous attention.

DESCRIPTIVE CATALOGUE, PAPELES DE CUBA. 

Legajo 1. 1775-1779. Correspondencia del Senor Galvez desde su ingreso de 
su mando a todas las Autoridades y sus Dependencias de la Isla 
de Cuba hasta su arribo al Virreynato de Nueva Espafia. B, 
23 cm., 700 letters. 

There are only a few documents for 1775, and none for 1776. All the 
months of the remaining years are represented. Within the legajo the mis- 
cellaneous correspondence of Galvez is arranged in small bundles for each 
month and the letters of Navarro to Galvez are in two packets, one each for 
the years 1778 and 1779. 

The legajo contains : (a) Letters directed to Bernardo de Galvez, governor 
of Louisiana, together with the drafts of his replies, from Joseph Biriones, 
San Juan; Francisco de Cartabona, St. Genevieve; Francisco Cruzat, St. 
Louis; Josef de Ezpeleta, Mobile; Luis Ferrazas, New Orleans; Fer- 
nando Leyba, St. Louis ; Diego Joseph Navarro, Havana ; Martin Navarro, 
New Orleans; Josef de la Pefia, San Juan; Josef Petely, Valiza (Balize) ;

Vallee, St. Genevieve, (b) Letters of Galvez to Joseph Biriones, Francisco 
Collell, Francisco Cruzat, Carlos de Grand Pre (many), Fernando Leyba, 
Athanase Mezieres, and Balthazar de Villiers. 

Subjects treated: The papers of 1775 relate to a case against Nicolas, chef 
de Natchitoches. The letters of the commandants of the various posts of the 
province deal mainly with routine affairs. Among others the following were 
noted : 1777, affairs at St. Louis and St. Genevieve ; cultivation of hemp and 
flax; possible attack on the province by the English; Bouligny affair 
(Mar.) ; 1778, report on wheat, hides, and lead produced in the jurisdiction 
of St. Louis ; taking possession of Illinois by G. R. Clark ; copy of the will of 
Mr. LaClede of St. Louis with list and valuation of his property ; 1779, lists 
of vessels entering and departing from the Mississippi ; petition of the French 
inhabitants living east of the Mississippi ; naval affairs ; and movements of 
the Americans. The letters of Diego Navarro deal mainly with military 
affairs. Many of them are nothing more than notes transmitting royal orders. 
Among the more important of this series are letters dealing with relations 
with America, England, and France; progress of the war; expeditions 
against the English posts on the Mississippi and Mobile rivers ; and the plan 
of the conquest of Mobile.
