Summary: 
A ^junta general^ has been organized by a new governor Enrique Davila y Pacheco to look into the reasons for and course of the Indian wars under old governor Guajardo Fajardo. A long list of men are brought before the council to speak of the killing and robbery committed by the rebellious Tarahumares, Salineros, Toboscos and Cabezas. Some testimony does suggest that the Indians were being treated cruely and this led to their rebellion. Finally Pacheco sends Philip Catalan and mrs. Catalan off to Mexico City to deliver the testimony to the viceroy.
