Abstract:

Confidential exposé, dated May 17, 1863 in Nueva Caceres, by Rafael Calvo de Castro, former alcalde mayor of the province of Camarines Sur, to Anastasio de Hoyos y Zendegui, recently appointed to the position.

Calvo, alcalde "cesante," has just returned from 16 months in Manila, where he has been facing charges of improprieties in office, after having served five years as alcalde mayor of Camarines Sur. He describes the province as he found it when he took office, with roads and buildings in shambles, due to frequent earthquakes, or shoddy construction. Corruption and government fraud were rampant. Repairs were nonexistent, due to lack of brick, lime, wood, and other building materials. Calvo describes the vandalism throughout the city, noting that every doorknob, window grating, lock, and bolt was stripped from the town jail, as well as the faulty construction of the Casa Real. He believes that all of the progress in the Philippines has been due to the efforts of the priests and superiors, who, with very little money and manpower, have managed to build their own churches and casas parroquiales. Calvo concludes by stating that his balance sheet shows that charges against him of missing funds are false; in fact, he and his wife made many repairs to the Casa Real using his own money, for which he has never been reimbursed even one sol from the government treasury. He notes that Hoyos will arrive after the rainy season in July, to occupy the Casa Real, now the best building in the province, and perhaps in all of the islands, while he, Calvo, will return to Spain, having been absolved of all charges by the Audiencia.
