It Was Probably Xoloc Against Which This Attack Was Made, And Diaz May Have Mistaken The Name After An Interval Of Fifty-One Years; For So Long Intervened Between The Siege Of Mexico In 1521, And 1572, When He Informs Us His History Was Concluded.

- E.

[5] Perhaps along the mound or causeway of Mexicaltzinco; by which he approached towards the great causeway of Xoloc, and the position of De Oli at Cojohuacan. - E.

[6] Though not mentioned by Diaz, this necessarily implies that one of the bridges of each causeway must have been taken possession of by the Spaniards, to allow the brigantines to get through into those parts of the lake which were intersected by the causeways. - E.

[7] Though not especially mentioned by Diaz, it appears that Cortes had taken the immediate command of the detachment of De Oli, at Cojohuacan, which formed the southern attack. - E.

[8] On some former occasions the xiquipil has been already explained as denoting eight thousand men. - E.

[9] Clavigero, II. 180, supplies the brevity used by Diaz on this occasion. He says that the chiefs of the districts of Matlatzinco, Malinalco, and Cohuixco came to Cortes and entered into a confederacy with him against Mexico; by which means, added to his former alliances, he was now able to have employed "more warriors against Mexico than Xerxes did against Greece." Clavigero everywhere deals in monstrous exaggeration, while Diaz is uniformly modest, and within due bounds of credibility. Even in the few _miracles_ of which Diaz makes mention, his credulity is modestly guarded by devout fear of the holy office.
