Seris called menos Mala, y la que Mas ha sido castigada of all rebels. 114 Seris killed, captured since June of 1768. Many Seris asking for peace. Notes surrender, pardon of capitan Crisanto. Crisanto states many Seris wish to make peace but are so dispersed it is difficult to get them together. Seris tired of life of constant danger, afraid of Spanish troops since attack on Palma canyon. Marcos described as el principal leader of Seris. Elizondo argues that although it would be best to exterminate rebels, their tactic of dispersing into small groups make such a task virtually impossible. States if Seris had been treated justly in first place, they may not have rebelled. Claims they were enslaved by los expulsos (Jesuits) and had most reason of all rebels to rebel. Notes that since Seris first to rebel, they're blamed for hostilities committed by other rebels. States Seris menos ynumana, y la que menos y mbasions ha hecho en la Provincia de ostimury. Notes that reduced Seris can be used as guides against Suaquis and Pimas. (T. Sheridan) (1980)
