This expedition appears to have been for the reduction
provinces to the south-east of the vale of Mexico, now forming the
intendency of Oaxaca, inhabited by the Mixtecas and Tzapotecas. The
Tustepeque of the text, was probably a town on the Boca de Chacahua on
the South Sea, now called Tututepec, in lat. 15º 50’ N. and long. 100º
15’ E. On the very imperfect map of Clavigero, it is named Tototepec,
and is placed in the country of the Mixtecas.—E.
 Named, more appropriately, in the map of Clavigero, Tzapoteca-pan.—E.
 I suspect this ought to be named Chinantla.—E.

name of the Rio
Coatzacualco, or Huaxacualco; by giving it the ordinary Spanish prefix
agua; which signifies water, or a river, with the native termination
Some Account of the Expedition of Francisco de Garay for the Colonization of Panuco.
Having formerly mentioned the expedition fitted out by Francisco de Garay, the governor of Jamaica, it seems proper to give a more particular account of that affair in this place.

For this purpose he sent for and discoursed with Alaminos, who had been our chief pilot, from whom he received so favourable an account of these countries, that he sent Juan de Torralva, a person in whom he could confide, to solicit the bishop of Burgos to grant him a commission for settling the country on the river of Panuco; and having succeeded in this preliminary step, he fitted out an armament of three ships, with 240 soldiers, under the command of Alonzo Alvarez Pineda, who was defeated by the Panuchese, one ship only escaping, which joined us at Villa Rica, as already related. Receiving no intelligence of the fate of his first armament, Garay sent a second, which also arrived at our port. Having now expended a great deal of money to no purpose, and having learnt the good fortune of Cortes, he became more than ever desirous to secure the advantages he expected to derive from his commission. With this
