Nemesio Salcedo. Peticion de indios para tierra y ganado.
Chihuahua. August 1803. 14p. Letter. Peticion. Original. Signed.
Juan Marcelino Pasqual Rivas, Jose Rafael appear before the commandante general saying that their lands and livestock were embargado after the expulsion of the Jesuits, and that Joachin Gomez, mayordomo, has been using the livestock and lands for his own benefit. They say their pueblos are in ruin, the churches are in disrepair and they are accordingly unprepared to repel any invasion. Fray Jose Maria Garrido of the mission de cero cahui says many of the Indians claims are false, and goes on to document his claims. He says that, knowing Indians as well as he does, they are probably in cahoots with Joachin Gomez. (P. Hayes) (1977)
