He states that for more than forty years, he has been serving his majesty at his own expense and on his own account, without having had an encomienda. During the general uprising that occurred in New Mexico, he was, on that occasion, on a frontier as the captain of six men he had at his command. Hearing about the uprising, he did not want to desert the frontier,having lost his wife and children on that occasion. If they do not give him aid, he cannot more his family, because he is extremely poor. At this, I, the governor and captain general, repeated to him what is of record above, according to the order and directive of the most excellent viceroy, the Conde de Galve, to which I refer.
