On the 2nd I passed through El Puerto de Alcalados and
reached Santa Elena, a ranch of the Sefiores Marqueses de Patos,
where there is only one well of water, very abundant, but taste-
less and bad. 14.
On the 3rd I passed through El Puerto del Frayle, without
water; through Tinajuela, with water in rainy season; through
El Puerto del Capulin, pool of rain water; through Agua En-
cantada, springs of good water; and I came to Buena Vista, farm-
ing lands of the Hacienda of the Sefiores Marqueses de Patos,
good water and abundant. 18.
On the 4th I reached the village of Saltillo, very pleasant, with
much good water; much wheat, corn and other grains are gath-
ered. Here I stayed two days resting and providing myself with
food. Here much wine and whiskey are made on account of the
many vineyards and orchards. 2.
On the 6th I passed through Molina de San Antonio, farm-
ing hacienda of Don Francisco Turundarena, left him by Don
Prudencio Basterra, in which there is a very good orchard and
vineyard: They make wine and whiskey. 6.
On the 7th I passed through El Puerto Cabrito, very rough
and rocky; through the ford across a river that did not have
much water; through the hills of Almid6n, and arrived at
Mesillas, a farming Hacienda of Turundarena; there is a very
good vineyard, and wine and whiskey are made. Here I remained
the eighth day, on account of its being the day of Conception, to
say mass and save myself from the bad rainy day that it was. 10.
On the 9th I passed through Monterillos; through Sierra
Galana; through the draw of Anelo; through El Puerto de Bar-
ranquillos; through San Nicolas, and reached La Popa, a large
ranch where there is much good water. 12.
On the 10th I passed through El Puerto de la Popa, very
rugged, steep and craggy; through La Boca de San Bernave;
through La Estaca; through El Puerto del Huisache, and came to
Saos, a spring of water not very bad. 14.
On the 11th I passed through the place called Pescadito; and
through La Voca de Tlaxcala which is between rough hills and
very high mountains. There are about two leagues of glades or
ravines on whose slopes there are fountains and springs of water
copious and abundant, which form a river that carries much water
Here’s what’s next.
