Anza Diary

Exploratory Expedition



Friday, April 15, 1774

Friday, April 15.–Having crossed the Santa Rosa River, at daybreak I continued west-northwest for twelve leagues, when I encountered more than two hundred extremely docile heathen, and some springs of asphalt which they have in abundance. After this I traveled four more leagues to the north in order to reach the mission of San Luís. [Footnote 133] Here there are four missionaries from San Fernando de Mexico, like the others mentioned, and a guard of eight soldiers, who gave me the same welcome that I received at San Gabriel.–From Tubac to the mission of San Luís, 345 leagues.
