Summary: 
Copies of documents dealing with tax collection. The provincias surrounding Culiacan must contribute with Alcabala taxes to real hacienda de Guadalaxara, it is said. However, Barco argues that Galvez decided that Culiacan would have its own real hacienda, and therefore no taxes should be sent to Guadalaxara. It also discusses which ethnic groups around Culiacan must pay taxes. Some pages, introduced with out order, deal with Indian rebellion in Colima. The Indians are prosecuted and killed by Vildosola. Indian group not specified. Discusses strategies for Indian pacification, and the amount of taxes Indians must pay. Torres asks directions from the virrey concerning what to do with Indians who have no clothes, food, homes, nor farm animals. The Rio Culiacan is said to have grown up and produced problems for the Indians living around Villas de Culiacan, Sinaloa and el Fuerte. Corbalan's petition to virrey requesting that he not ask the Indians of Culiacan for taxes (Tributos) due to the losses they have suffered from the rains and floods in the province. (R. Gomez, November 1989)
