Monterrey, Mexico. October 10, 1791-December 03, 1791. 70pp. Approximate. Letters. Originals. Accusation that military campaign against indians has been slow and inefficient, goes into detail describing steps and strategies he has employed, attests to fact that he has also followed the virrey's orders to mount offensive campaign near Rio Grande (northern part), asks for reestablishment of two companies abolished by ugalde so that they May be transformed into 12 units, argues that the presence of these added troops would help encourage additional settlement and thereby add to sums collected in the form of diezmos, attack on presidio of punta de lamparos, indians attack yguana as one unit and then split up into two units and remain in area; vaamonde explains letter written to virrey in which virrey interpreted as being insolent, major point of contention being vaamonde request that two companies mentioned earlier be reestablished, cites the fact that indian attacks have increased because of the absence of the companies and that the area is a frontier and needs troops in order to establish the uncontestable reaches of the province, argues that the organization of these troops into 12 units of 29 men each would in some cases make for more successful settlements because the settlers would have as their primary concern things other than indian attacks, strategy he would have liked to use with the troops at his disposal would have been to keep them on the move continually so the indians would not be able to plan attack but small number of men and illness have made implementation of that strategy impossible. For that reason he seeks reestablishment of aforementioned companies; letter explains that the two companies abolished by ugalde without consultation with the preceeding governor Gonzales de santianes, says that when he requested the reestablishment of these from the current comandante general de armas Ramon de Castro he was severely rebuked and told that Coahuila was in dire need of said troops, makes same request of virrey and includes proposals on how this company would be paid -excise taxes, cites depopulation and poor agricultural output as consequences of settlers fears and divided attention, successful settlements would also improve the commercial integration of all of New Spain since these areas produce some important commodities, excise taxes to support troops would then be cost effective since vaamonde reasons producton in area would go up as well as consumption from added settlers; letter to virrey from vamonde telling of events in area as related to him by Ramon, information on troop movement in area of punta de lamparos and speaks of orders given to Ramon directly from Castro; letter from virrey to vaamonde mentioning his order on the subject of the reestablishment of the companies mentioned, will advise him on his decision.

Talks of establishing prices for trade, advises that they not trade with aguardiente, cites the bundles of raw tobacco as one of the more important items with which to trade; miro has received copy of letter written by Cavello giving advise on how to handle indians in Texas and Coahuila from his personal experiences as governor in these areas.
