Summary: 
Valiente, administrator of the hacienda de Californias, insists villages is not canceled, most of the sheep of the hacienda will die during the present year because they do not have enough land to graze. The request causes great concern among the authorities because they find themeselves in the dilemma of revoking a right of the settlers or harming the real hacienda (which is administering the temporalities of the Jesuits since their expulsion). Long transcriptions of the reports, letters and acts related to the repartimiento of the missions' land to the new villages are attached. It becomes clear that the government is interested in maintaining the villages for strategic reasons, as frontier settlements. Several details concerning the precise limits of each jurisdiction and private estate, the resources and about procedures for the division of land in general are included. (S. Nielsen, October 1989)
