This chapter focuses on the shipwreck that happened to Baltasar de Castro and others on a ship from Spain bound for Hispaniola with a cargo of mares. It states that of the seventy-nine persons on board, forty-six were drowned and thirty-three were miraculously saved. Amador de los Ríos notes that in both the autograph manuscript and the sixteenth-century copy from which he was working, the texts of Chapters XI–XIX were missing, as well as the first part of Chapter XX. Fortunately, Gonzalo Fernández de Oviedo y Valdés's general index to the third part has the initial chapter summaries, which at least give an idea of the missing contents. None of these summaries are dated.
