Summary
Relates attempts to present new method of government in new missions and attempts to increase reducciones. Describes some campaigns as successful while others merely increased enemy and so need increases for military protection and for conquests to curb violent acts. Concerns search for riches in new missions as in old for self-sufficiency. Discusses the distribution of land and requests for annual inventory of missions and listing of Indians. States that Indians of San Bernardo are very obedient, attempts are being made to give them Spanish values and that current system allows for Spanish control until Indians can govern themselves and increase population. Governors suggest a new system is needed to keep pace of conquests, that Indians should move into towns and that Jesus and Nizarron should join and share water supplies. Relates failed efforts to establish new missions with adequate water, land and production in 1756 and 1767. (M. Dannemiller, 1987)
