THE JOURNEY OF CORONADO
the country of the Hearts, it would have
gone worse with them. They got back to
the town, leaving 17 soldiers dead from
the poison. They would die in agony
from only a small wound, the bodies break-
ing out with an insupportable pestilential
stink. When Don Pedro de Tovar saw the
harm done, and as it seemed to them that
they could not safely stay in that city, he
moved 40 leagues toward Cibola into the
valley of Suya, where we will leave them, in
order to relate what happened to the general
and his army after the siege of Tiguex.
Of how the general managed to leave the country
in peace so as to go in search of Quivira, where the
Turk said there was the most wealth.
DURING the siege of Tiguex the general
decided to go to Cicuye and take the gover-
nor with him, in order to give him his liberty
and to promise them that he would give
Whiskers his liberty and leave him in the
village, as soon as he should start for Qui-
vira. He was received peacefully when he
reached Cicuye, and entered the village with
several soldiers. They received their gover-
nor with much joy and gratitude. After
looking over the village and speaking with
the natives he returned to his army, leaving
Cicuye at peace, in the hope of getting back
their captain Whiskers.
