He said that he only knows those of his companions who were brought with him to Chapultepec, and all of the other people whom he has treated with have been and are Catholics.
All of this he said was the truth under the oath that he had taken and he affirmed it, ratified it, and signed it.
This passed before me,
Don Eugenio de las Peñas
(Secretary of the Holy Office)
Order of Restitution
Made by His Lordship the Inquisitor Don Francisco de Garzarón Bringing the Said Joshua Morton Back into the Fold of the Holy Catholic Church, October 8, 1720
later on the same day, month, and year, the said Lord Inquisitor Don Francisco de Garzarón, having seen the declaration above made by Joshua Morton, a native of England, by which it appears that the said Morton has been raised, instructed, and educated
in the dogmas and errors of the Anglican Church, and that he had not been instructed in the mysteries and beliefs of Our Holy Catholic Faith, until he had been brought to this City of Mexico and taken to the Royal Palace of Chapultepec, where they were
proposed by Father Castro who assists to the ministry at the said mountain of the Royal Palace, and he quickly embraced them with promptness and docility, and he now requests to be reinstituted in the fold of the Holy Catholic Faith of Rome, His Lordship orders
and ordered that the said Joshua Morton should be absolved ad cautelam of the censures in which he could have incurred for the errors which he has previously held and believed, and now has detested in his said declaration, and which touch upon the
Holy Office, and he orders him restituted and reinstated into the unity of the Sacrament of the Holy Mother Church of Rome, and concerning this he should be given testimony and certification in the proper form held by law.
