Summary: 
Coronel Escandon, in charge of the conquest and colonization of territories north and northeast of Mexico City, reports about the preparation of the expedition. He plans to attack from all possible sides at the same time, counting for this on the cooperation of the military authorities of all the military detachments of the area (he specifies how many soldiers will provided by each of them). He thinks this strategy will result in a better control over the area than the classical isolated military raids. The authorities give him full support, but warn him against using any violence with the Chichimecas unless strictly necessary. (A. Nielsen, October 1989)
