No place of that name is now found in our best
maps. The principal
town of the district of Chachapoyas has the same name, otherwise
called St Juan de la Frontera.—E.
 Not far to the south of San Leon de Guanuco,
in the mountains of
Lauricocha, there are considerable silver mines.—E.
 No such place is now found on our maps in the
province of Guamanga;
but the ruins of a town named Vittoria are marked in the district of
Calca, about fifty miles north-west from the city of Cuzco. Perhaps
the Vittoria of the text is the town now called Guamanga.—E.
 Probably the country of the people now called
Chunchos, who are
implacable enemies to the Spaniards.—E.
 Probably the province now called Chicas
on the eastern side of the
Andes, occupying the head of the river Chirivionas which joins the
Paraguay or Rio Plata.—E.
 Off the mouth of the river Lurin, in lat. 12
deg. 26’ S. is the island of
Pachacamac, probably indicating the situation of the ancient province
of that name.—E.
 The first of the Incas is named by Robertson,
II. 290. and III. 47.
 By Zarate this Inca is named Guaynacava, but
the more general name
used by Garcilasso de la Vega and other Spanish writers, and from them
by the illustrious Robertson, is adopted in this translation.—E.
 Garcilasso de la Vega, p. 65, describes the bridge
over the Apurimac
not far from Cuzco, as about two hundred paces in length. He says that
its floor consisted of three great cables as thick as the body of a
man; having another cable on each side, a little raised, to serve as
rails. The two hundred toises or four hundred yards of the text seem
an exaggeration; perhaps a mistake of the French translator.—E.
 This prince is called Atabaliba by Zarate, and
Atabalipa by some
other writers, but we have chosen to follow the illustrious historian
of America in naming him Atahualpa.—E.
 These names are not to be found in our best modern
maps of Peru: but
some other names not unlike, as Mayobamba, Chachapoyas, Partas, and
Caxamarca, are in the present bishopric of Truxillo, the most northern
in Peru proper, and therefore likely to have been the seat of war
against the revolters in Quito.—E.
 The whole of this appendix to the first section
is an addition to
Zarate, extracted from Garcilasso de la Vega and Robertson; which,
being too long for a note, has been placed in the text. The
introductory part of this deduction is from the History of America,
Vol. II p. 289. The list of kings is from Garcilasso, whose
disarranged work is too confused for quotation.—E.
