Mexico. April 17, 1584 and April 26, 1584. Orig. Sgnd. Typesc.
An account of ^ancient and modern discoveries in New Spain and New Mexico^ submitted by Obregon to the king in order to propose his appointment as maestro de campo on the next journey to New Mexico. He begins with the record of events provided by the aztec writings, and continues through the account of the Conquistadores. Discussion is mainly on New Mexico and Culiacan. The natives of the regions involved are given certain weight in the description, which is largely historical. (C. Briggs) (1975)
