Summary
Ugalde leads a campaign against Mescaleros and others in spring and summer of 1787. Several engagements and Spaniards penetrate as far as the Rio Puerco of New Mexico. Information on Mescalero customs, life, bands and leaders. Ugalde closes his final letter with a most revealing understatement- the Indians along this frontier understand how to launch surprise attacks on our troops in both mountains and plains. This sad but true fact has been repeatedly verified in Nueva Vizcaya and Sonora. (T. Naylor, 1977) and (D. Marksz, June 1987)
