Translation by José de la Torre, 2002

"1801 October 30. Monterey.
A letter from Carrillo to Arrillaga conveys that the bears have destroyed much livestock, mainly she-asses, hence he has given instructions for bringing them near the garrison for protection.

He also writes that so far the vaqueros have killed 39 bears by ambushing them in the hills, in the surroundings of 'El Portezuelo'; that a bloodthirsty bear which had eaten five she-asses and seven cows from the king’s livestock was hunted; that two oxen killed by the bears had been found; that in the surroundings of Carmelo [River?] a female bear killed an Indian named Cecilio, who was hunting quails for the padres."
