Miguel Costansó
We felt great apprehension about two mulatto muleteers who, having requested permission to go out hunting, had been absent from the camp for three days, and who had not yet appeared. We suspected that they had suffered some injury from the natives, or that they had deserted.

Fray Juan Crespi
Two of the mulatto muleteers, who yesterday asked permission to go hunting, have not returned up to this time, and we are all anxious about them, fearing they may have
received some harm from the heathen, or may have deserted and will be lost in this wilderness.
