Collection of three different works. The first work dates from 1666 and is the recommendation of the Royal Council of Castile, given to Mariana of Austria, Queen of Spain, calling for the resumption of the performance of comedies, which she had suspended upon the death of her husband, King Philip IV, in 1665. The council argues that the income generated from the plays could be used to offset declining revenues from food taxes. The second work, which comprises most of the manuscript, dates from 1696 and is the record of a communication of the Royal Council concerning the jurisdiction of the Spanish Inquisition, protocol regarding the immunity of the inquisitors and their families, and the correction and limitation of certain excesses of the inquisitors. The third work is probably from the early 17th century and is a short medical treatise by Pedro Garcia Carrero, referred to in the text as Pedro Garçia or Pedro Garzia, professor of medicine at the University of Alcalá in the late 16th and early 17th century, in which he mentions Galen and Hippocrates.
