Documentation
Mexico, Laredo. Apr 28 to jul 15, 1788. 32p. Informes. Letter. Signed.
Summary
F.220 reports deaths of 5 Apaches on chaingang. F.222 lists ages, gender of those transported. F.223 begins letter in rabid prose by Ugalde, listing tribes now ensconced in christianity as example; repeated acts of idolatry (dances) by Apaches endanger everyone, should be stamped out (no pun intended). Seems to suggest they be converted by force, not choice. F.225 vows to chastise most execrable Lipanes. F.229 apparently suggests that Comanches be given firepower to eliminate Apaches. F.232 complains of hypocrisy of reports given to him. Letter is puzzling considering Ugalde's earlier anthropological attitude toward Apaches. (A. Dean, April 1990)
