THE JOURNEY OF CORONADO
Of how the army started from the town of Senora,
leaving it inhabited, and how it reached Cibola, and
of what happened to Captain Melchior Diaz on his
expedition in search of the ships and how he dis-
covered the Tison (Firebrand) river.
AFTER Melchior Diaz and Juan Gallego
had arrived in the town of Sefora, it was
announced that the army was to depart for
Cibola; that Melchior Diaz was to remain
in charge of that town with 80 men; that
Juan Gallego was going to New Spain with
messages for the viceroy, and that Friar
Marcos was going back with him, because
he did not think it was safe for him to
stay in Cibola, seeing that his report had
turned out to be entirely false, because the
kingdoms that he had told about had not
been found, nor the populous cities, nor the
wealth of gold, nor the precious stones
which he had reported, nor the fine clothes,
nor other things that had been proclaimed
from the pulpits. When this had been an-
nounced, those who were to remain were
selected and the rest loaded their provisions
and set off in good order about the middle of
September on the way to Cibola following
Don Tristan de Arellano stayed in this
new town with the weakest men, and froi
this time on there was nothing but mutinies
Here’s what’s next.
