Summary
Diego de Vargas informs the viceroy of the precarious among the natives; the settler population has been decimated by an epidemic, with the loss of Vital personnel such as soldiers, and others of frontier experience; there are insufficient domestic animals for the working of the land, resulting in great hardship for the residents, making them susceptible to sickness; the discovery of a metal deposit, hoped to attract immigrants, has produced disappointing results.
