Handwritten on top of first page, listed as la tercera parte de las islas por Alonso de Santa Cruz. Ef. Idem cum 121. Vol. m.s. carries page numbers 69-85, the number of photostat pages being twice that. The above information is handwritten on the top of the first page--i presume it to refer to the source as no other is given. note- this version varies from the document from the documentos ineditos del archivo de indias, Vol. III, pp.325 translated by baldwin in nm historical review 1 (2)- 193-223. The other version has, of course, received a great deal of treatment in the published literature.
