January 4, 1514

We have finally returned to Puerto Rico after months of sailing.  Our job now is to put down the natives who defy Spanish rule.  There are many rebellions throughout this society so we must make them follow our laws.  We soon will return to Spain and I hope to be promoted by our royals to a higher rank for my success here in the West Indies.  This will bring great honor not only to me, but to all of my family also.
