Motto translated by the editor. -- B.K.

Oviedo refers here to the custom of meeting at the cathedral of Seville to arrange all manner of contracts. This gave rise to the practice of hiring and negotiating with soldiers bound for the Indies. The soldiers awaited outside the church the results of the conferences that the merchants and captains held within; from these conferences often developed many of the great American conquests and expeditions. -- B.K.

William Shakespeare, Measure for Measure, Act V, Scene 1. -- B.K.

Tribe here may be understood to mean clan or kinship group. -- B.K.

This tax was designed to strengthen the Armada de Barlovento, the Spanish squadron guarding the Windward Islands. -- B.K.

Notes to Chapter 12
1
When Brazil was in its infancy, the clergy could not subsist on their tithes, and therefore petitioned the government of Portugal to pay them a certain stipend, and receive the tenths for its own account: this was accepted: but now the tenths have increased in value twenty-fold, the government still pays to the vicars the same stipends. The clergy of the present day bitterly complain of the agreement made by those to whom they have succeeded.
