Example text

Of particular interest are his and Spratling’s comments on how the book would be received by “our official friends” because of its emphasis on contributions by religious in the early colonial period. William Spratling Correspondence, Spratling Ranch, Taxco el Viejo, México. ╇ Peter Gerhard, A Guide to the Historical Geography of New Spain (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1972); The Southeast Frontier of New Spain (Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 1979); and The North Frontier of New Spain (Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 1982).

These two minor departures from an absolutely literal translation improve, in our view, the oration’s readability. The remaining additions in this sentence are translated in a more literal manner, recognizing that the coordinated clause “let us not falter or faint” was a deliberate stylistic and rhetorical modification introduced by Chimalpahin, which serves to illustrate the balance between literal translation and overall legibility that we strove to achieve throughout the translation. Additionally, we have tended to divide the text into more manageable paragraphs with somewhat shorter sentences.

C on c l usion What motivated Chimalpahin to produce this work? It is impossible to extrapolate a specific motivation from the manuscript, but Chimalpahin’s own place of residence may provide an indirect clue. As Susan Schroeder suggested,76 Chimalpahin’s residence in San Antonio Abad in Xoloco was located at the site of Moteuczoma’s momentous first encounter with Cortés,77 and a commemoration of this event in the late sixteenth century would certainly have captured the attention of such a perceptive annalist.
