undeniable that Brother Rodriguez was a member of an exploring
party. Likewise it seems too incorrect to say that Chamuscado as-
sumed authority after the expedition had crossed the Rio Grande,
for he was given a captain's commission to head the expedition
from the start.
In answering Father Engelhardt's criticism of my use of the
term "new materials," I must quote the sentence in which it was
used: "The writer, making use of new materials, attempted to
demonstrate a few years ago, how unfounded were those charges."
These materials, two manuscripts, were received from Spain by
the Newberry Library in 1914, and certainly should be regarded
as being new when used by me in 1917. They should not be
confused with the two affidavits, published in the last issue of the
SOUTHWESTERN HISTORICAL QUARTERLY, which constitute new
material at the present date. I see no reason for changing my
published conclusions on the Chamuscado-Rodriguez expedition.
Nor have I modified my opinions in a detailed account of the
expedition which will appear in the July issue of the New Mexico
Historical Review.--J. LLOYD MECHAM.]
