      Mendoza, with all the formality of The Coronado expedition viceregal authority, ordered that 1540-1542 book vessel sailing from New Spain should touch at any port in the New World on its way back to the home peninsula, and this notice was duly served on all departing shipmasters by the secretaries of the viceroy. It is leagues west of Mexico. In some parts of it there were very large houses, which were ten stories high, and the leading men met together in these on certain days of the year. Abandoning this field, he tried to win a share in the conquests of Pizarro and Almagro.

      He adds that Estevan had demanded from the Indians treasures and women, and this agrees with the legends still current among these people. This took them to the 1540-1542 book of separation, which can hardly have been south of Red river, and was The Coronado expedition more likely somewhere along the North Fork of the Canadian, not far above its junction with the main stream. This expedition headed northwest to the Hopi villages, which they recorded as Tusayan. Many natives of the Mexican provinces stayed in the Pueblo country when Coronado abandoned it. They are good to eat, and taste like figs, and are better than dried meat; they are very good and sweet, keeping for a whole year when prepared in this way. While at court Alvarado must have met Cabeza de Vaca.

      Bad feeling was inevitable, and The Coronado expedition squabbles over forms of address and of precedence, which Suarez de Peralta records, were only a few of many things which reveal the relations of the two leading men in New Spain. A few things, however, had been seen and heard by the wanderers which suggested the possibility of lands won h conquering. He proceeded thither at once, but instead of being admitted, he was placed under guard in a house near by. These serve to cover the body.

They gather a great quantity of brushwood and dry it to use for cooking all through 1540-1542 book year. Conceived and organized by Spaniards, the massive expedition comprised an eclectic mix of people from the Old World and the 1540-1542 book Castilians, Portuguese, Italians, French, Germans, Africans, and even a Scot, accompanied and far outnumbered by Tlaxcalans, Mexica, Tlatelolcas, Tarascans, and other native people of New Spain.

The adelantado had expended large sums in preparing for this undertaking—a claim advanced with equal vigor by all the parties, and usually supported by specific accounts, which unfortunately are not printed—and it was only right that he should be given every opportunity to reap the full advantage from these outlays.

To remove this objection, Alvarado brought twenty maidens from Spain.

The Journey of Coronado, 1540

The pueblo of Hawikuh, the one which the friar The Coronado expedition saw, contained about houses, or between and 1, inhabitants. And the people in these cities The Coronado expedition very well clothed. If the news was 1540-1542 book promising, the cross was to be twice this size, and if the country about which he heard promised to be larger and better than New Spain, a cross still larger than this was to be sent back.

Not a sign of anything which would reward their search, and hardly a thing to eat, had 1540-1542 book discovered during the months of toilsome marching. Estevan had planted several large crosses along the way, and soon began to send messengers to the friar, urging the latter to hasten, and promising to wait for him at 1540-1542 book edge of the wilderness which lay between them and the country of Cibola.

There are many rivers between the two, with settlements of the same sort of people — for example, Sinoloa, Boyomo, Teocomo, Yaquimi, and other smaller ones. They had crossed no other large river since leaving the bridge over the Canadian, and as the route had been south of east, as is distinctly stated by one member of the force, they had probably reached the Canadian again.

Many natives of the Mexican provinces stayed in the Pueblo country when Coronado abandoned it. Archaeologists subsequently searched the site and found pottery sherds, more than forty crossbow points, and dozens of horseshoe nails of Spanish manufacture, plus a Mexican-style stone blade.

The King agreed to allow the new governor a salary of 1, ducats from the royal treasure chests and 1, more from the province, with the proviso that the royal revenues were not to be held responsible for this latter sum in case New Galicia proved too poor to yield so large an amount.

He reassured the few Indians whom he found still living in the valley, and after some hesitation on their part succeeded in persuading the chiefs to come down from the mesa and talk with him. Here he provided the friar with Indians, provisions, and other things necessary for the journey to the Seven Cities.

A few months later he recalled the settlers whom he had left at Santa Cruz, in accordance, it may be, with the command or advice of Mendoza. The men here wear little shirts of tanned deerskin and their long robes over this. The general, in his glittering armor, was the especial target of the defenders, and twice he was knocked to the ground by heavy rocks.

Thus he was the possessor of the key to all that lay beyond. At first, it was probably the intention of the three Spaniards to return to The Coronado expedition, in order to 1540-1542 book the due reward for their manifold sufferings. And since his return, the said friar has published the statement that he came within sight of the said country, which I deny that he has either seen or discovered; but instead, in all that the said friar reports that he has seen, he only repeats the account I had given him regarding the information which I obtained from the Indians of the said country of Santa Cruz, because everything which the said friar says that he discovered is just the same as what these said Indians had told me: and in enlarging upon this and in pretending to report what he neither saw nor learned, the said Friar Marcos does nothing new, because he has done this many other times, and this was his regular habit, as is notorious in the provinces of Peru and Guatemala; and sufficient evidence regarding this will be given to the court whenever it is necessary.

While the friar was waiting at Vacapa, he sent the negro toward the north, instructing him to proceed 1540-1542 book or 60 leagues and see if he could find anything which might help them in their search.
