New Mexico: Governor Vargas wakes at his campsite near the abandoned Pueblo of Jemez and attends morning mass.  After the mass some messengers arrive from the new Pueblo of Jemez bringing the supplies he requested when he was there the previous day, although due to the short notice the quantities are quite small.  He is grateful nonetheless, interpreting their fulfillment of the request as a symbol of their obedience, and he thanks the messengers and gives them gifts.  Once they depart he and his men break camp and march as far as the abandoned Pueblo of Santa Ana, where they make camp for the night.
