CABRERA QUINTERO, Cayetano, Mexican author, born in the City of Mexico about the end of the 17th century; died about 1775. He studied at the Seminario Tridentino of Mexico, was graduated at the University, and held the professorship of civil and canon law. By his zeal and example he promoted the development of the Academia de San Felipe Neri. Being a most accomplished Latin, Greek, and Hebrew scholar, Cabrera wrote several works in Latin, and translated from the classics, especially from Horace and Juvenal, into Spanish verse. Among his numerous writing.s are "Hymni omnis, generis et mensurae ad inn-tationem Prudentii, Christiane Poetae" ; "Liber voriorum Epigrammatum e Graeco in Latinum translatorum"; "Letras laureadas" (300 epigrams selected from Latin classics); "Disertaciones y oraciones academicas" ; "Sermones panegiricos y morales" ; "Santa Cristina, la admirable," a poem ; two comedies entitled "La Esperanza malograda" and "E1 Tris de Salamanca," and many descriptive works, the best of these being a splendid description of the terrible epidemics called "matlaza-hual," that scourged Mexico in 1736-'7.
