Summary: 
Excellent letter concerning vicious personal feud between padres Ortiz and Garcia. Ortiz accused Garcia of treating Indians too harshly, working them so hard they didn't have time to cultivate their own Milpas, beating them for the slightest infractions. Yaqui leaders corroborate Ortiz' charges. According to una coyota in Torim, Garcia beat the temastian so brutally he died 6 months later. Garcia accuses Ortiz of attacking him between Torim and Bacum and of being and of being a drunk. Arriola believes Ortiz is insane. Both missionaries use Yaquis to carry out feud. (T. Sheridan) (1979)
