Power of Attorney, January 24, 1738 at Presidio Los Adaes, the officers and soldiers of Los Adaes appeared before Lt. General don Joseph Cayetano de Bergara, to annul a power of attorney given to former Governor Manuel Sandoval for the collection of their salaries. The troops transferred their power of attorney to Sandoval’s successor, don Carlos Franquis de Lugo, while he was interim governor of Texas. The officers and soldiers then gave power of attorney to Governor Orobio y Bazterra, who followed Lugo, while don Domingo Gomendio remained as the secondary party in Mexico City to request payment of Adaesaño salaries from the Royal Treasury.
