Summary: 
On the Basis of information provided by the governor of Nueva Viscaya concerning the alliance between French and Apaches, and the presence of a French army near Santa Fe, the junta de real hacienda decides to confiscate all the possessions of French people living in New Mexico without licence. It also decides to give more support to the presidios of the area. Officers from other towns (E.g., San Sebastian) report what they need in terms of supplies and soldiers to stand eventual attacks. The junta also aproved a proposal for establishing a new presidio and Apache reduction in Valle de la Xicarilla, endowing it with a strong military company because the place is continuously threatened by Comanches and Yutas, traditional enemies of that group. (A. Nielsen, January 1990)
