Summary: 
In this report, Coronel Escandon, founder of Villa de Hoyos, describes the steps followed to found this village, Padilla and Cerro Santiago. He underlines importance of these settlements for the consolidation and expansion of the frontier over Indian territory. Based on the remarkable effort invested by their inhabitants, on the fact that all the legal procedures were properly followed at the time of the foundation and distribution of land, and in the negligence of the administrador of hacienda de Californias to set his request at that moment, he recommends to maintain everything in the present situation.
