Summary: 
Criminal case against Matias Medina Charged with misleading the Indians of Taos. Medina told the Indians that once a defensive Wall had been complete, governor Melgares and captain Sanudo, would come and take their grain and livestock and give each family one almud of corn per month. The grain and livestock would be use to feed the soldiers stationed in the province and others who would be brought from outside the province. The expropriation would be facilitated by inventories of property prepared on the orders of the governor. Medina also Charged that Melgares and Sanudo were rebels, and that the two had done the same thing at an unamed fortified Plasa. The officials deciding the case questioned the competency of testimony given by two Indians, and let Medina off with the four months he had served. (Robert H. Jackson) (1980)
