Three letters to Henry Phillips, Jr. concerning the American Philosophical Society manuscript by Parras, #1531. Middleton fails to identify Parras for Phillips. Padre Francisco Pedro Joseph de Parras wrote a travel narrative [#1531]devoted in part to travels in Spain and to descriptions of Montevideo and Buenos Aires. One half of the work is the author's relation of a trip through Paraguay, visiting various mission pueblos. He provides a general description of life, education, and Christian teaching for the Indians, and a list of Jesuits at various missions.
