Summary: J. de Herrera, the government Agent for Desamortization, presents a detailed financial report of desamortization for 1874. Herrera suggests that some articles of the Desamortization law could be changed to make the process more financially sound.
Historical Notes: The disamortization decree was issued on September 9th, 1861 and abolished the inalienable right to tenure of property by institutions, primarily the Catholic Church. The disamortization decree was issued by Tomás Cipriano Mosquera’s administration along with other decrees that affected the Catholic Church, including decrees that expelled the Jesuits and one that closed the houses of some religious orders.
