Notes: He carried the first news of the Pima uprising of 1751 in the form a a letter from Francisco Pérez Serrano in Santa Ana to Bernardo de Urrea at Opodepe, as follows: Lord Captain Don Bernardo de Urrea My Dear Sir Three young boys have arrived at this place, one of them wounded, giving notice that the Pimas have struck in the realito of Oquitoa. These three escaped without waiting to see more than the fight that was taking place between the Pimas and the residents of that realito. I pass this news on to Your Excellency in this brief form so that it can be promptly communicated to the Governor. All the residents and I remain here with the necessary caution required by such news and, God willing, it will be convenient for Your Honor to communicate with me. In the meantime, I pray to God to keep Your Honor many years. Santa Ana, November 21, 1751 (Francisco Pérez Serrano) P.S. I have returned to ask the eldest of the said boys (which is the one who is wounded) at what time the Indians struck in the said realito. He said it was this morning just as the first rays of the sun were breaking over the horizon. When he went through Átil this morning he could see a large cloud of smoke billowing over Tubutama where he assumed they had burned the church. I go there now with the few residents of this place. Lord Captain, Your devoted servant kisses the hand of Your Honor Joseph Ignacio Salazar. (AGI, Guadalajara 419, 3m-14, pages 4-5) He is also recorded as Ignacio José Salazar.
