SUMMARY.
Sancho de Alquiza reports that the trade and traffic
with the enemy still continued and that tobacco was being
exchanged for goods. He states that there is no money ;
tobacco and hides take its place in trade.

There are no defences except one weak fort in the Island
of Trinidad and one in Guayana each of which has
four pieces of small range.
The English, Dutch and French frequent the ports and
the Caribs attack openly killing both Spaniards and Indians.

He reports that the Governors of Margarita, Cumana
and Guayana never agree on anything but squabble eternally
amongst themselves. He recommends that all these there
places should be under one Governor.

He asks for authority to punish the Caribs by attacking
them at Dominica and Matalino.
