The Province of Cumana maintains itself gener-
ally but the Islands of Trinidad and Margarita subject
to this Viceroyalty,lack entirely any troops, fortific-
ations or defence and arc without any power to resist
any attack from enemies.
The distance to these Islands is so great ;ind
although at times the Capital might be in a position to
help, any information which may arrive is very confus-
ed and distorted.
They carry on a trade in mules with foreigners
from these parts as well as the town of Barcelonia and
we can only allow it subject to suitable duties to the
Treasury and are unable to prevent it.

Cultivation in the Island of Trinidad does not
succeed for want of rain. Curas are paid 183) pesos to
each and they have in care 11596 Indians. The Town
of San Jose has 326 vecinos and 417 Indians.
