Summary
Castro comments on Nava's proposals for presidio, asking that cost study be done before he makes decision. Nava gives info on construction materials, details of design of proposed presidio. Suggests that prison labor be used, that funds could be taken from primera volante's fondo de gratificacion; estimates that with those measure total cost for presidio would be 9-10,000 pesos. Includes sketch of proposed presidio with explanation of use of various buildings shown in drawing. Castro adds suggestions to Nava's plan, but judges that presidio would be ineffective due to geography and inability of soldiers to patrol all the area that Indians use; also states that Indians (Tamaulipos) are too fierce to be contained by reduccion. Budget for plan included. Castro chides Nava for stating that northern Villas had no urgent problems with Indians without first visiting area or consulting topographic map. (O. Velez, February 1990)
