The council was to be held to-day, but it was postponed until to-morrow in order to give everyone more opportunity and time to consider such an important matter.

Fray Juan Crespi
Today I celebrated the Mass of the Holy Ghost, at which all the people were present, and all commended this important matter to God. In order to give more time to think
it over and afford each person opportunity and time to discuss this very important matter, the commander allowed one more day's time, putting off the decision until the following day, the Eve of the Immaculate Conception of Most Holy Mary, patroness of the kingdoms of Spain.
