Summary: 
Periodic reports from leaders of destacamentos relating new events; most reports say nothing was happening. Copy of itinerary of one Destacamento listing pueblos and haciendas they were to visit from Fresnillo to Durango, and distances in Leguas. Complaints that regimiento spent more money because of high cost of maiz and maintenance of horses. Lasso de Vega is unable to make March to Chihuahua because he has too few horses and money.
