Troops of fronteras and Terrenate have been reinforced, and several soldier groups search for Apaches. In a fight near Chirriones soldiers recover an Opata and a Yaqui Indian taken captives by Apaches. Vildosola states Apaches seek peace and want to exchange prisoners with soldiers. Apaches state they want to be good and will behave; they want prisioner exchange to take place away from presidio for fear of being captured. Vildosola agrees hoping that Apaches would settle in reducciones. other documents on various raids conducted by Pimas and Seris.
