Spanish term or phrase: Comisario Superintendente
"Hacia 1780 la corona hispánica se debatía entre la necesidad de mantener los establecimientos de la Patagonia tomando en cuenta el motivo que llevó a su erección y los costos que su mantenimiento significaban para el erario. Si bien las expectativas estaban puestas en la extracción de sal o en desarrollo de la actividad pesquera como medios para lograr su subsistencia, hasta ese momento, ningún establecimiento estaba produciendo algún tipo de recurso que garantizase su autonomía. Por otro lado, el supuesto clima de disminución de las hostilidades con la Corona Inglesa llevaba a revisar la necesidad de mantener la acción defensiva en la región atlántica sudoriental. Los documentos muestran dos posturas claramente distantes. Mientras que el Virrey Vértiz (1778-1784), se declaraba partidario del mantenimiento de un único asentamiento, el de Nuestra Señora del Carmen, y el abandono de los otros tres, las personas que se desempeñaban como funcionarios en el área de frontera como eran el **Comisario Superintendente** Antonio de Viedma y el Piloto de la armada real Basilio Villarino y de Francisco de Viedma , se mostraron a favor de su preservación."

See this extract: The soldiers knew this building as the Quartermaster\'s Commissary and Storehouse. It was a large U-shaped structure with twelve-foot-high, unplastered walls and a cellar underneath the northwest wing. When the soldiers left, the building was occupied by the Martinez, Ochoa and Romero families. They transformed it into a dwelling typical of northern Mexico villages and knew it as the comisario.
