    Pedro de la Torre was one of those Spaniards in the New World who by virtue of being serially in trouble gave the courts reason to generate documents that illuminate that vanished world for us His first scrape with the law came when he was accused of not holding the university diploma that made him a doctor and incidentally of having served as secretary to Erasmus He denied both charges and probably lied both times He never produced the diploma; the mail between Italy and New Spain being carried by ship it was hard to procure a new copy What little we know of his medical practices does not inspire confidence; there is evidence of him being mystified when confronted with a patient and of resorting to what seems to be magic But at a time when Hernan Cortes was still alive there were only two doctors in all of New Spain They charged enormous fees refused to travel to the countryside and at least of them wanted to return to Spain So De La Torre was allowed to practice and re entered the bureaucratic world of the colony's courts a decade or so later when the much loved Spanish poet Gutierre de Cetina was wounded outside his door Evidently the poet was wounded because he was with the new lover of De la Torre's wife which inspired the old lover to violence As further evidence of De La Torre's degree of medical skill Cetina was recovering from his wounds when he suddenly died probably of an infection The obsessive detail of these court records reveals much unpleasantness about the world of sixteenth century New Spain the existence of black slaves in the households; the use of torture to extract information from them white witnesses were not apparently subjected to it; the murderer as a member of the spoiled generation that followed the conuistadors; the lady in uestion being illiterate although European; the lamentable state of medical knowledge at the time De La Torre's last appearance in the historical record appropriately enough given the times was to examine the medical credentials of the colony's physicians
