PETITION OF ZALDIVAR
Petition of the Maese de Campo, Vicente de Zaldivar Mendoza
May 14, 1602. Mexico City.
Mighty Lord:
I, Vicente de Zaldivar Mendoza, your maese de campo general in the provinces and kingdoms of New Mexico, state that I came to this court by order of the adelantado, Don Juan de Onate, who is also your governor and captain general of the said provinces and kingdoms, and by order of your viceroy in Mexico, to inform your highness of the state of affairs of the said conquest, in regard to which the viceroy and the audiencia of Mexico made investigations in order that it might thus he better understood. And, at my behest, testimony was taken before the said royal audiencia which I am presenting with this letter in order that it may be considered, together with all the other papers.
I beg and entreat your highness to place these papers with those sent by the viceroy and audiencia of Mexico in order that the most fitting measures may be taken for the royal service of your highness as soon as possible. This is essential both because of the importance of this business and because of the great danger in which the adelantado, Don Juan de Onate, was left, owing to the small number of people in his garrison and town of San Gabriel, and in order to prevent the Indians of the larger settlements from getting arms or uniting and marching on the place where the governor is, which may be feared if the Indians should hear of the small force under the command of the adelantado. Should this happen, all the effort and expense, as wall as the great services which the adelantado has rendered to your highness, would be lost.
So , I request justice, and so forth. Vicente de Zaldivar Mendoza. [Rubic].
