ERRATA IN TRANSLATION OF MANZANET MS.-Through the
kindness of Mr. Eugene A. Giraud, of Austin, my attention has
been called to some mistakes and oversights in the Translation of
the Manzanet MS. in the April number, which I wish to correct
P. 292, 1. 3, for "Guasteza" read Guasteca.
P. 294, 1. 13, read one hundred and fifty loads of flour, two hun-
dred cows, four hunderd horses, fifty long guns . . . . . .
Mr. Giraud suggests that the word "morillos" in the original
document, p. 272 of the April QUARTERLY, should be translated
rafters instead of pebbles. He claims that the word "morillos,"
with one r has the meaning rafters in Mexico, while "morrillos,"
with two r's, is used for pebbles. A careful examination of the
usage of the scribe will show that spelling alone will not give con-
clusive evidence here. I am not acquainted with the Mexican use
of the word mentioned by Mr. Giraud, though I know that
morillos is used to mean andirons in Spain. However, the trans-
lation "a small superstructure of rafters, very skillfully arranged"
makes better sense than that which I gave, p. 303, 1. 24, 25, and is
acceptable on the supposition that the word morillos has the local
signification rafters in addition to the meanings given in the
LILIA M. CASIS.
Here’s what’s next.
