Summary: 
Escandon reports his advances in the exploration of the northern territory, describing the landscape, resources (lands, salt, minerals, woods, water sources, etc.) and Indian groups. He underlines the convenience of founding a village in a Valley called Voca de Santa Rosa. This proposition is well received by the authorities, who decide to effect it in the near future. Concluding the trip, Escandon recommends authorities send missionaries to preach in the area. The authorities are interested and continue to support the undertaking. (A. Nielsen, October 1989)
