The Governor, Antonio de Berrio, left with his expedition
from the Province of El Dorado in March of this year.
It would appear from the most reliable reports that he
has arrived within eight leagues distance of considerable
towns of numerous Indians.
There it is said that Antonio de Berrio had lost his way
which had disturbed the men. In consequence of this a
Captain had returned to this town to report everything to
the Royal Audiencia with the object of stopping Antonio
de Berrio from proceeding any further.
