Of illegible letter mentions the possible hoarding, shortages and bottlenecks that may result due to order aforementioned, that Parras and Saltillo send remittances to Durango; troops are not paid on monthly Basis but rather the avilitado receives funds for his company 6 months in advance; letter expressing sentiment that revenue will be deposited locally instead of sent to the real hacienda for the sake of efficiency; order to intendente telling him to send sums needed to provinces monthly instead of every six months so that surplus of assets will not build because of the possibilities of these assets being corrupted if they are there in large numbers; mentions the conflict of interests between the troops and the avilitados of the revenue accounts as it relates to a more timely remittance of funds, ff 0533 illedgible.
