Letters of Antonio Martinez
powder and balls, I need only say to you that I have only 27,000
cartridges for supplying the parties that must be continually sent
out against the Indians as well as to perform other necessary
duties, for, although I have a box of powder, it is useless and
can be of no help whatever.
I know the many duties that your Lordship must, at this time,
perform. I also know the lack of money you are experiencing.
However, the situation this province is in does not permit me to
remain silent regarding the things I have petitioned your Ex-
cellency for. In spite of the great needs that are mentioned, the
things I have cited do not permit the least possible delay. I am,
therefore, awaiting such measures as your Lordship may be
pleased to take.

MARTINEZ TO THE COMMANDANT GENERAL
When the special messenger was on the point of starting with
the enclosed sealed paper, I received your Excellency's letter of
the 28th of last month written from "Cinco Sefiores" which con-
tained the circular you sent me. Informed of what you wrote
me, I cannot fail to report that I will send to Bahia the aid re-
quested in the aforesaid paper as soon as possible.
