SUMMARY.
Don Luis de Monsalves, the newly appointed Governor
of Trinidad and Guayana, reports that he arrived at Trinidad
on 22nd May and finds this Island unprotected and
inadequately supplied with ammunition and supplies.

He states that all the Indians in the Island are in rebellion
and that there are only forty men at San Josef, some of them
very old and infirm.

There is nothing to prevent the English or Dutch enemies
from capturing the Island and the Indians trade freely and
openly with these enemies every year for w l-'h purpose
they return regularly.

Whereas His Majesty has ordered that 50 soldiers be
stationed at the town of San Thome at the expense of the
Royal Exchequer, the Governor now urges that another
30 soldiers be sent for a garrison in Trinidad.
