Sandoval Immediately Ordered Me And That Soldier, Whose Name Was Villanueva, To Go Back And Bury The Genoese, Which We Did Accordingly, And Placed A Cross Over His Grave.

We found a purse in his pocket, containing some dice, and a memorandum of his family and effects in Teneriffe.

God rest his soul! _Amen_. In about two days we arrived at Naco, passing a town named _Quinistlan_, and a place where mines have been since discovered. We found Naco to be a very good town, but it was abandoned by its inhabitants, yet we procured plenty of provisions and salt, of which we were in very great need. We took up our quarters in some large quadrangular buildings, where De Oli was executed, and established ourselves there as if we had been to have remained permanently. There is the finest water at this place that is to be found in all New Spain; as likewise a species of tree which is most admirable for the _siesta_; as, however great may be the heat of the sun, there is always a most delightful and refreshing coolness under its shade, and it seems to give out a delicate kind of dew, which is good for the head. Naco is admirably situated, in a fertile neighbourhood, which produces different kinds of _sapotes_ in great abundance, and it was then very populous. Sandoval obtained possession of three chiefs of the district, whom he treated kindly, by which means the people of the district remained in peace, but all his endeavours to induce the inhabitants to return to the town were ineffectual.
