Summary: 
Discussion of the Spanish Tropa del Piquete de dragones. It has been based in Sonora for a long enough time that its members are now mostly Mexican-born, criollos de esta provincia, (the troop began as entirely Spanish) and they want the troop to remain in Sonora, their home, rather than return to Spain, as it appears has been suggested. One author claimed most of the original Spanish members either had died, been released, or deserted (as had Mora). Alonso Nunez de Haro y Peralta said that those who did not want to continue with the troop could be released but that they had to be replaced with new recruits because that troop was necessary to the security of the province. Ff.11-12 contains biographical information about Mata Binolas, Villaescusa, and Tona, proposed in that document as candidates for the position of capitan in la segunda compania Franca de Voluntarios de Cataluna. (it appears that is the new name for the Spanish Tropa del Piquete de dragones.) The position of capitan was left vacant by Sola's departure due to an old leg injury. The position of teniente was also vacated. Suggestions to fill it were made by Sola on ff.13. They included Sartorio, Fato, and Franco. Mata Binolas and Sartorio, respectively, were chosen. (S. Langmack may 1990)
