Bowles still roamed free and posed a threat. Seminoles continued to support him, and he looked to Nassau to bring him arms and goods to secure Indian support. Spanish galleys and gunboats stayed on the Gulf Coast to stop them. Folch, acting arrogantly, insisted on trying the Fort San Marcos officers for their surrender, and misinformed Casa-Calvo, who disapproved of his behavior. The Spanish search for Bowles persisted, as did their naval struggle to nab his vessels. The Panton trading company encountered difficulties in introducing Indian goods. Bowles continued in the wilderness, attempting to gain Native support in East Florida and in Apalache.
