Summary
Documents recount Series of Indian raids against San Juan, San Pablo, and other haciendas in area in which many men and livestock were killed. Other haciendas terrorized by dumping of victims' bodies from previous raids. Spanish troops engage in battle, but nightfall allows Indians to escape. Arredondo writes to virrey that Texas lacks sufficient troops and material to adequately protect residents from Indian hostilities. Includes inventory of troop strength at all Texas presidios to support plea for assistance. Concludes with verifications of receipt by tesoreria de Texas of 6 thousand pesos to alleviate situation.
