THE JOURNEY OF CORONADO
Of how Francisco Vazquez Coronado came to be
governor, and the second account which Cabeza de
EIGHT years after Nufio de Guzman made
this expedition, he was put in prison by a
juez de residencia,' named the licentiate
Diego de la Torre, who came from Spain
with sufficient powers to do this.' After
the death of the judge, who had also man-
aged the government of that country himself,
the good Don Antonio de Mendoza, viceroy
of New Spain, appointed as governor of that
province Francisco Vazquez de Coronado, a
gentleman from Salamanca, who had married
a lady in the city of Mexico, the daughter
of Alonso de Estrada, the treasurer and at
one time governor of Mexico, and the son,
most people said, of His Catholic Majesty
Don Ferdinand, and many stated it as cer-
tain. As I was saying, at the time Fran-
cisco Vazquez was appointed governor, he
was traveling through New Spain as an offi-
cial inspector, and in this way he gained the
friendship of many worthy men who after-
ward went on his expedition with him.
A judge appointed to investigate the accounts
and administration of a royal official.
2 A full account of the licentiate de la Torre and
his administration is given by MIota Padilla (ed.
lcazbalceta, pp. 103-106). He was appointed juez
March 17, 1536, and died during 1538.
