Summary
The priests from Bahia del Espiritu Santo ask the authorities to give more support to that settlement (mainly in terms of food and military supplies), and to help in the pacification of the Apaches. An ongoing attempt to reach an agreement with these groups is related. Several Apache women and children were captured and used to force the Indian chiefs to negotiate a peace treaty. The primary target of the Indian raids seems to be horse stealing. (A. Nielsen, November 1989)
