Mezieres, Athanasia de (Comandante)
San Antonio de Bexar. July 4, 1772. 2p. Letter. Signed.
Mezieres proposes to destroy Apaches by hunting them down and destroying their livelihood. Notes that one result will be strengthened ties with peaceful nations and more successful campaigns against osage, who are deemed to be much more terrible than Apaches. Requests permission to sell captives taken in expedition. (T. Cederstrom, October 1986)
