Summary
Letters between Cavildo de Horcasitas, governor of Santander, and viceroy in reference to attacks suffered by region from different Indian groups killing many inhabitants, stealing agricultural products, horses, cattle and other goods including clothing. Plans by governor to attack groups; frustration due to impossibility to find culprits as many groups have requested and live under peace, but do damage under guise of peaceful coexistance.
