the Province of Toledo, by special instruction that I have received for the
purpose from Father Claudio Aquaviva, our director general, give permis-

Father José de Acosta, a religious of that society, has written; and it has been
examined and approved by learned and grave persons of our society. In
testimony of which, I gave this permission signed with my name and sealed
with the seal of my o≈ce. In Alcalá, eleventh of April of 1589.
