To Canada del Cojo (Aug. 26).



Gaspar de Portolá
The 4th, we proceeded for six hours and made the same distance as in two marches on the outward journey.

Miguel Costansó
We left Los Pedernales. We passed the Ranchería de la Espada without stopping, and arrived at the Pueblo del Temí or Cacique Cojo, a distance of four and a half leagues from the former place. The Indians of the town gave us a quantity of fresh and dried fish, many sardines, and bonitos, so that, thanks to God, we begin to see abundance in the camp. For another thing, the country, covered with beautiful green grass, offered excellent pasture for the horses, so that we had the satisfaction of seeing them grow appreciably stronger every day. The weather, from the time we left the Cañada de los Osos, had been very clear. Only the nights were cold; the days were more like those of spring than of winter.

Fray Juan Crespi
We set out early in the morning, and, following the channel by the road over which we came, we passed by the town of La Espada and continued the march for four and a half leagues, until we came to the town of Santa Teresa. The chief of this village is the one called Cojo, who conducted himself so well that he immediately delivered a fat mule which had been left with him on the 26th of August because it was thin and tired. He and his people presented us with a great deal of fish, fresh and dried, sardines and bonito, so that now there is abundance, and want is banished. At the same time the country is delightful, for it is covered with beautiful green grass which affords excellent pasture for the animals, which improve every day. The weather, since we left the valley of El Oso, has become very calm, and it is only at night that cold is felt, while the days seem more like
spring than winter.


January 3 To Rocky Point.
