1777. When the second Spanish-Portuguese War broke out in 1776, the Spanish king knew that the strength of the navy and merchant fleet would be essential for securing a victory. To that end, the crown has here instructed Viceroy Guiror to create a register of all sailors, both merchant and crown, living in the ports and coastal towns of the viceroyalty, so as to have them in ready reserve. Guiror here promulgates the very detailed instructions for the accomplishment of that list. He first grants amnesty to all deserters provided they present themselves within six months for active duty/work and he goes on in the 72 articles of this statute to list those exempted, the age requirements to be maintained, the jobs covered by the register, the reserve's administrative structure, the hierarchical tree of command, etc., as well as specifying that all will enjoy the privileges and exemptions that the crown long ago extended to the navy and merchant marine. Not found via NUC or WorldCat, but we know of a copy in backlog processing at the John Carter Brown Library.
