Licentiates Espinoza and Zuazo to the Crown, Santo Domingo, March 30, 1528

In a ship which cleared from here at the end of December of last year we reported3 to your majesty on the arrival of an English ship which came and crossed to these parts and was anchored in the port of this city and the captain landed. We reported fully everything which occurred and everything this ship did. A caravel which the officials of the island of San Juan sent here with similar report was sent as a despatchboat. Therefore, and because the vice-provincial of the Order of Saint Dominic for these islands and Fray Antonio Montesino will recount everything with respect to this English ship and the captain and crew she carried, since they were eyewitnesses, no further report is made to your majesty in this matter.
