Summary
Cabello favours Linares over Santa Rosa because there are hostile Indians in Santa Rosa area. Referring to documents concerning the question (Croix to Cabello August 6, 1779), he states that there is enough water and fertile soil in Linares area as well as enough forests to maintain a sizeable population. He mentions that there are already 250 people at Linares. He also states that the issue is a very controversial one with the public. (R. Graham) (1979)
