Notes
Interesting for insights involving change of administrations from one gobernador to another and bad prison conditions. Do not confuse Pedro, fhelipe and Joseph de rabago y theran (see vito alessio robles, Coahuila y Texas en la epoca colonial, pp.518-519 for background on scandal and imprisonment of rabago y theran) nor Juan Antonio and manuel Antonio Bustillos y Cevallos. Folio 73 is titled indices particulares. Some pages, out of order, missing or duplicated. Documents dated January 1755 should have been dated January 1756.
