July 3 (June 23, o.s.)

Jamaica: The Council sends the letter drafted on June 20 to the Lords of Trade and Plantations.

Mexico: The viceroy, acting in response to the widespread belief that the Indians of Mexico city were primarily responsible for the rioting on June 8 and the disturbances at the city grain exchange preceding it, decrees that grain will no longer be distributed directly to individual Indians at the exchange. Instead, the official leaders of the various Indian neighborhoods will receive grain on behalf of the residents there, and distribution of the grain to residents will be conducted by these leaders in conjunction with local priests.
