Summary
Concerns condition of presidios of Nueva Vizcaya; notes visit of bishop to various places; provincial depopulation; geography; livestock; vegetation; daily life of soldiers; detachments of los Alamos and Mapimi; private armed forces and civil militia; distances between presidios; troop strengths, arms and equipment and fiscal administration. Bishop urges that frontier cavalry be converted into infantry to increase number of fighting men available and advocates formation of new presidios.
