This translation was made by Buckingham Smith from a copy in the Archivo de Indias at Seville (rubricated by the secretary Samano). It was published in the appendix of his translation of the Elvas Narrative, the Bradford Club edition (New York, 1866) from which it is reprinted. Florida historians and all who are interested in our history are under great obligation to this Floridian and scholar who made so much of our Spanish colonial history known to us.
