ABSTRACT

CHAPTER LVI ONE morning we $larted on our march to the city of Cholula and that day we went on to sleep at a river which runs within a short league of the city, and there they put up for us some huts and ranchos. This same night the Caciques of Cholula sent some chieftains to bid us welcome to their country, and they brought supplies of poultry and maize bread, and said that in the morning all the Caciques and prie$ls would come out to receive us, and they asked us to forgive their not having come sooner. Cortes thanked them both for the food they had brought and for the good will which they showed us.
