Summary
This is Escandon's final report about his expedition to the seno Mexicano, the area of the worthwestern coast of the were involved, how many soldiers were provided by each military company, the geography with special emphasis in potential resources which could facilitate future settlement (wood, minerals, arable land, irrigation potential, salt, possibilities of communication, etc.), and the Indian groups, with names and gross estimates of their numbers. He refers to a map that was attached to the document, but now is missing. The last part of the account is a plan of settlement, recommending the foundation of 14 villages. The advantages of the proposed locations are described, both from the point of view of the prospective settlers, and for the general policy of the state. He finally suggests where the financial resources for such enterprise could come from. (A. Nielsen, October 1989)
