Several articles written in the last few years about the hurricane of 1559 that hit Pensacola Bay, then the Bahía Filipina del Puerto de Santa María, have inadvertently given the wrong date, August 19, 1559, when the hurricane struck. It seems appropriate to correct this error to prevent it from perpetuating, and the Luna Papers provide the necessary information.1 This note also provides an opportunity to mention several other noteworthy aspects of the Luna Papers.
