The period from 1782 to 1800 passed in comparative quietness. No momentous events occurred, and these eighteen years were productive of greater peace than any before. The age tingled with romance; love supplanted by bloodshed; and the beginnings of many Spanish families that have endured to this day were started.

When Governor de Neve was made Inspector-General of the troops of the Provincias Internas, by an act of the King, he left Monterey for Chihuahua, and Pedro Fages became governor in 1782. At his estate in Monterey, Governor Fages had an orchard of some six hundred fruit trees, besides shrubs and grape-vines, and was proud of it. He improved the moral conditions through the territory, he demanded absolute moral conduct among his officers at the presidio and the Alcaldes of the pueblos. Fages left Monterey in 1791, being succeeded by Jose Antonio de Romeu. Early in the reign of Governor Fages, Father Serra died (August 28, 1784), and the country greatly mourned his loss.
