Excerpt: “The first night of the journey they stayed overnight at the Santa Clara pueblo, north of Santa Fe, and from there they ‘traveled nine leagues, more or less, and arrived at the pueblo of Santa Rosa de Abiquiú, where because of various circumstances we remained on the 31st without traveling, and where by means of a Solemn Mass we again implored the aid of our most holy patrons’.” (Submitted on May 3, 2014.)
