San Fernando. March 30, 1773. 21p. Letter. Transcription.
Summary
Two memorials by Ximenez, with a response from the fiscal. The memorials recommend procedures for the relationship between the military and mission system be adopted in Sonora similar to those used in Texas (these are listed, along with frequent legal citation). A major suggestion is the stationing of two soldiers at each mission; the fiscal's objection is the dispersion of effective military force. Ximenez lists the distances between missions, saying that they are too far apart to enlist each others aid against small enemy forays (the major need of protection) but close enough for mobilization of troops in case of major military action.
