Summary
Important document regarding the political and geographical and Alta. Valdello went with Ruiz to explore lands. Discussion of advantages (spiritual and temporal) of dividing government of Antigua and Nueva Californias, including faster Indian conversion Rate and agricultural progression. Reference to historical annexation of California to Sonora and movement of government from Loreto to Monterrey (500), leaving captain acting as teniente of government of Baja California. Notes great geographic distance between these sites and remoteness of Loreto to Monterrey leaders busy with, among other things, northern new establishments and spiritual needs (conversion). Division is suggested for these reasons. Governmental division will expedite Monterrey-to-Loreto correspondence to 60 or 70 days (502). Discussion of moving governor to border to open communication between north and south. Sonoran captains' annual salary (505). River usage for communication and commerce. (J. Hiller, April 1989)
