About this Item

Title

  • Rel[aci]on de la entrada q[ue] hizo por el estrecho el Navio yngles, y de lo q[ue] se previno contra el

Summary

  • The original draft of the letter from the Viceroy of Peru to the Governor of the Río de la Plata (resident at Buenos Aires) recounting Sir Francis Drake's depredations on the Pacific coast of Spanish America during his voyage of circumnavigation and the measures taken there against him. The numerous inter-linear and marginal additions and correction throughout this version of the letter prove that it is the original draft. This piece was probably written from dictation, with the Viceroy indicating additions and cancellations as he went along.
