to be advisable on this matter, according to the opinion of the
auditor, which opinion was to the effect that Y [our] Ex [cel-

governor, after consulting with the captain, who is so familiar
with that country, especially the district of La Paz, during any
time deemed opportune, may carry it out with all solemnities
contained therein; and that, to this end, one dispatch should
be sent to the governor and one to the captain of La Bahia for
these detachments, with Y [our] Ex[cellenc]y giving orders
to the royal officers for the payment of soldiers who may be
detached and transferred to serve at the presidio of San An-

and the captain of La Bahia, and the [captain] of San Antonio,
may be apprised thereof, they should be so informed in the
aforesaid dispatches; or, whatever Y[our] Ex [cellenc]y may
deem most advisable [may be done]. Mexico City, July eight-
