Summary: 
Includes 3 unrelated expedientes, numeros 19-21. Numero 19 concerns attack by Meco Indians on Rancheria Martinez; Serrada recounts ordeal, telling of horses killed by arrows or stolen; he has taken several Indians prisoner, awaits word on punishment or place of imprisonment; told to send those guilty of previous crimes to Havana, others to Castillo Ulua; Galves outlines plan for sending adult Indians to Castillo to learn Christian doctrine and to prevent further 'deserciones'; other Indians 'remitidos' to various Villas, possibly to help in tobacco harvest. In 20, Serna regrets that he is unable to assume appointment as 'teniente' in company of Nuevo Leon due to health and other factors. In 21, comerciante Fernandez outlines glorious potential of maritime trade between Veracruz and Nuevo Santander, arguing that salt, plomo, Carne, Lana, other necessary goods could be more easily and cost efficiently traded by sea than land, if government tax and other policies were to encourage, not discourage, maritime entrepreneurs; fiscales promptly denounce Fernandez's 'representacion,' stating that 'no tiene Cosa substancial.'
