Summary
Letters concerning administration of presidios in the area of Durango, including the founding of a new town in Carrizal, a misunderstanding between the corregidor and capitan general concerning new appointments, a visit from virrey to Durango, the urgency of appointing a new comandante in San Phelipe y Santiago de Janos since the previous one died and neither the teniente nor the Alferez know how to read and write, the mysterious disappearance of the Mule driver (Arriero) named Franco, who after being highly recommended for his skills left San Phelipe el real with a dispatch of silver and never arrived in Mexico, the only proof that the missing silver is in the possession of Franco are the emphatic claims of the assayer of the town. Later Franco explains his delay as caused by a serious drought (Seca) and gives a very detailed account of trip. (T. Kahana, November 1988)
