Mexico. July 31, 177?. 6p. Consulta.
Commentaries and opinions of fiscal about proposals of Riperda to trade weapons with Indians of Texas. Riperda claims it is only way to keep them from dealing with French and English. Fiscal questions peacefulness and loyalty of Indian groups in question and notes that their barbarous way of life (hunting and trapping) is not conducive to christianization or peaceful relations with Spaniards. Recommends strongly that they be settled and taught agriculture. (T. Cederstrom, October 1986)
