Documentation: 
Durango, Chihuahua. May 21, 1785 - December 6, 1786. 34p. Letter, real cedula. Copy, original. Signed.
Summary: 
Vizcarra, accused of disloyalty, murder and other crimes held in jail at Durango. Sentenced by comandante general Ugarte to 10 years of hard labor in leg chains to be served at real obrage of Encinillas. Intendente of Durango, Diaz protests to virrey that actions by Ugarte involving military courts belonged to office of intendente, therefore accuses gobernador of insubordination and comandancia of incompetence. Requests from virrey copy of real cedula of 1785 defining duties. Interesting for conflict between officials over jurisdiction and responsibilities of intendency versus gobernador of Provincias Internas during period of implementation of administrative changes in New Spain. Documents include royal cedula outlining reorganization of Provincias Internas, responsibilities of gobernadores, intendentes and other officials toward office and king. Topics include taxes, administrative territories and interaction between civil and military departments, fiscal obligations, salaries, goals for defense and economy. Galvez' dictado provides information specific to conflict of responsibilities and personnel undergoing administrative changes in Provincias Internas in 1786. (J. M. Johnson, August 1987)

Notes: 
F. 15 duplicated f. 25 consists of Sonora -- extractos de expedientes ocurso del intendente de puebla don manuel flon que pide se le paguen los sueldos vencidos. I conclude that this folio is out of place, since apparently document itself has been archived elsewhere.
