It is well known that since the year 1518 Hernán Cortés was in New Spain. Also well known is how Adelantado Francisco de Garay, governor of the island of Jamaica, was granted the governorship and captaincy-general of the province called Pánuco, through which runs the Palmas River, next to or a part of New Spain. At this same time, Licentiate Alonso Zuazo was in the city of Santiago on the very island of Fernandina, where he had previously been governor, but in the time of which the governor was Adelantado Diego Velázquez. When Francisco de Garay learned the news he realized that, even though he carried sufficient powers and royal provisions from the lord emperor, to enter his territory of Pánuco, now settled and occupied by Hernán Cortés, would be impossible without some risk and much opposition.
