Ugarte y Loyola, Jacobo de
Arispe. January 6, 1788. 12p. Letters. Copies.
Concerns division of Provincias Internas. Ugarte says Croix had his obedience although they thought differently. Sent informes to virrey but must have arrived too late to be considered. If his word had carried weight, he would have objected to decision because feels it inhibits the pacification process. says can't achieve divided what could united. Since originally given complete authority of six provinces, Ugarte wonders if virrey's decision due to error on his part. Requests virrey to advise him in that event. Acknowledges receipt of decree giving instructions for division. Although disagrees, promises not to take action that would inhibit division. says Flores should give him same authority as Galvez and approve plans begun under Croix. says that when recommended, area was very diverse but now division not required.
