Jamaica: John White, President of the Council, dies. He is succeeded by John Bourden.

New Mexico: Governor Vargas and the reconquest expedition leave the outpost of Fray Cristóbal in the morning and travel as far as the Pueblo of Senecú, the southernmost of the Rio Grande Pueblos. They camp for the night in front of the abandoned settlement, which was destroyed by the Apaches in 1675.
