Summary
An affidavit of Vargas' request to the king for permission to proceed to New Mexico. The part of interest is in the front where a summary of previous explorations in New Mexico is given. This focuses on the character and economy of the native peoples. Although two and three story pueblos with governors were found, the Indians are characterized as being of such a state of barbary that only a few men should go and at de Vargas' expense. (C. Briggs) (1975)
