This chapter examines the slowing of reform at the Santa Clara Convent in Havana, Cuba, during the period from 1770 to 1782. The apparent lull in the pace of the Bourbon Reform program occurred during the decade-long interim between the fall of the Marqués de Esquilache in 1766 and the rise of José de Gálvez in 1776. During this period, the Clarist nuns continued to reject the common life and appeared to be in no hurry to reduce their numbers to ninety as prescribed in Franciscan Commissary General Plácido de Pinedo's 1767 regulation.
