Summary: 
Series of lengthy documents dealing with formation of comandancia general del Poniente and comandancia general del oriente; Nueva Vizcaya belongs to Former, Coahuila to latter. Most documents concern whether Parras and Saltillo belong to Nueva Vizcaya or to Coahuila. Jurisdiction of Parras and Saltillo are important for proper collection of taxes and payment of media anata. other documents deal with requests from local municipal officials as to whether they should obey orders from Diaz de Hortega or Fueros. Some officials are threatened with imposition of fines if they do not follow orders from Fueros or Diaz de Hortega. Misunderstandings occur because prior to separation of two comandancias, Parras and Saltillo fell under jurisdiction of Nueva Vizcaya, and later were placed under Coahuila. (J. Tapia, February 1988)
