Summary
Responding to Galvez plan to exterminate enemy Seris and Pimas along the Rio Grande and the seacoast, Anza notes that with the recommended expenditure of 200,000 pesos they could augment presidio troops, supply them with better arms and munitions, and thus effectively control the Cerro Prieto, now used as a Haven by the enemies. Noting that the vecinos of Sonora can't be expected to raise much money, due to their small number, he reminds Pineda of the missions' generosity. (R. Perez) (1977)
