Summary
Lengthy Series of documents about plans for removing some presidios from Coahuila and placing them near rio del Norte. discussion that Apaches have been continously raiding the area around Monclova, San Sabas, Santa Rosa, etc. Apaches have killed people and horses, and soldiers have not been able to stop them. Ugarte complains that there are not enough soldiers in presidios to stop Apaches. Bucareli informs Ugarte that it has been decided to move some presidios and to form a compania Volante in order to better combat Apaches. Ugarte replies that this plan will fail because new position of presidios will leave a very large area unprotected, and that Apaches could easily continue raids. Ugarte gives a good geographic description of the surrounding area. He states it would be better to increase number of soldiers in presidios so that they would be able to protect people near presidios and still send troops to fight Apaches. Documents of some local people asking viceroy not to remove presidios. Other documents describe some of tactics employed by Apaches, making it difficult for troop to combat them. Viceroy asks other people's opinion about effectiveness of removing such presidios. (J. Tapia, March, 1988)
