It is a description of great conquistador, Cortez, written by Bernal Diaz in 1516. This document again displays attitudes of indifference toward the Native American population, as Cortez promises gold, silver, and Indian slaves to anyone who accompanies him in conquering the new lands. Only briefly is religion mentioned in the document. This shows that the conquistadors valued wealth more than spreading the word of God.
