Attack by taraumara's in which 2 men and 1 women were left nude; suspects that attack was committed by escaped indians from mission of oro; requests information on arrests made by subdelegado of mapini of thieves; indians from Moris mission complain of mistreatment which led many to escape the mission; found irregularities in the delays of confession to indians; says that during visitas he has made, all social classes mistreat indians but none eager to protect them. Based on nature of indian attack described above and the fact that cattle were stolen, Borica concludes that attacks were perpetrated by Apaches despite witnesses contention that they were Taraumares. Has not heard any news on expedition of 30 men with indian scout ojos Colorados sent to attack rancheria mantas prietas; letter from lasso de la Vega concerning measures to be implemented in missions and care with which relevant personnel are to proceed so as to avert rebellions by indians; Guadalupanos are exempt from these measures; indians of the Moris mission voice complaints about cruel treatment from padre guardian of mission who with stones and kicks gets them out of bed to work. The mission is prone to attacks and if he is killed in one of them they want to make sure that the crime is not attributed to them. Indians of Batopilas mission as well as governors of the area complain that padre of mission does not confess or marry indians and that he does not follow authority of teniente in the area for which reason they seek to be resettled to Zacatecas and padre Aguilar. Rascon told to exert his authority over religious personnel that have overreached theirs and to make sure that the only people authorized to punish indians are judges and justiciales reales. Information on treatment of indians and conduct of religious personnel is to be fowarded to Cavallero de Croix. Leaves on his third outing with 60 men taken from the first and third companies. (O. Velez, March 1989)
