PEDRO SANCHO. REPORT OH THE DISTRIBUTION OF THE RANSOM OF ATAHUALLPA.
REPORT ON THE DISTRIBUTION
RANSOM OF ATAHUALLPA,
CERTIFIED BY THE
NOTARY PEDRO SANCHO.
IN the town of Caxamalca, of these kingdoms of New Cas-
tille, on the 17th day of the month of June, in the year of
the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, 1533, the very magnifi-
cent Lord and Commander Francisco Pizarro, Adelantado,
Lieutenant, Captain-General, and Governor for his Majesty
in the said kingdoms, in the presence of me, Pedro Sancho,
Lieutenant of the General Secretary, on the part of the
Lord Pedro Samano, declares : that, on the occasion of the
imprisonment and defeat of the chief Atahuallpa and of his
troops in this town, some gold was collected, and that after-
wards the said chief promised to the Christian Spaniards
that they should find a certain quantity of gold in his prison,
which quantity should, he declared, be a room full, namely,
10,000 tejuelos, and much silver which he possessed and
promised ; and which his -captains, in his name, had taken
in the war and capture of Cuzco, and in the conquest of
those lands, by many ways which are more fully declared in
the act which was attested before a notary; and which the
said chief has given, brought, and ordered to be given
and brought: of which a division and distribution has been
made, as well of the gold as the silver, and of the pearls and
emeralds which have been given, and of their value, among
the persons who were present at the capture of the said
chief, and who acquired and took the said gold and silver,
and to whom the said chief promised, gave, and delivered
it; so that each person might have, hold, and possess that
which belonged to him ; in order that his Lordship might
without delay settle the matter, and leave this town to go
and people and reduce the land beyond, and for many other
reasons which are not herein stated; for which object the said
Lord Governor declared that his Majesty, in his provisions
and royal orders, in which he granted the government of
these kingdoms, commanded that all the fruits and other
things that in these lands might be found and acquired,
Bhould be given and distributed among the conquerors who
should acquire them, in the way that seemed best to him,
and according as each person should deserve by reason of
his rank and services; and considering the above said com-
mands, and other things that ought to be considered in
making the distribution, and that each man might have his
share of what the chief had given, as his Majesty had com-
manded, he has determined to name and select before me,
the said notary, the quantity of silver which each person
shall have and take, according as, in his conscience, God
our Lord shall give him understanding; and, for the better
performance, he seeks the aid of God our Lord, and invokes
his divine assistance.
Then the said Lord Governor, considering what is said
and declared in the deed, having God before his eyes,
assigned to each person the marcos of silver that he had
earned and deserved, out of what the said chief had given,
and in this manner it was arranged.
On the 18th of June of the same year of 1533, the said
Governor approved another deed, by which the gold was to
be melted and distributed; and the gold was melted and dis-
tributed in this manner. I distinguish the gold and silver
that each one received in the following columns; that the
list of persons may only be given once.

9 A very conspicuous personage in the future civil wars. He took a
part in them all, down to the insurrection of Giron. He was surnamed
" the rich", and became a citizen of Cuzco, where he died in 1562.
Frequent mention of him will be found in Garcilasso.

* It should be Juan de Barbaran. He was a native of Truxillo, and
was a servant of the Conqueror. When Pizarro was murdered no man
dared to bury the body, for fear of the assassins, until the faithful Bar-
baran and his wife performed the office in the best way they could,
dressing the body in the mantle of Santiago. Barbaran afterwards
fought bravely against the younger Almagro at the battle of Chupas.

3 Pedro Ortiz de Orue became a citizen of Cuzco, and married a sister
of the Ynca Sayri Tupac. See Note at p. 253 of vol. ii of my transla-
tion of Garcilasso de la Vega, Part I.
4 When the Indians rose against the Spaniards, under Ynca Manco,
Diego de Aguero received timely notice from the Indian servants on his
estate, and escaped into Lima. After the murder of Pizarro, he fled
from the Almagro faction, and joined Vaca de Castro at Truxilio. He
also persuaded the people of Lima to receive the unpopular Viceroy
Blasco Nunez. He seems to have been a loyal, peaceable man.
s One of the twelve who protested against the murder of Atahuallpa.

8 Melchior Verdugo was a native of Avila. He received a large grant
in the valley of Caxamarca. H e distinguished himself in the battle of
Chupas againBt Almagro the younger. He was a friend of the Viceroy
Blasco Nunez de Vela; and when Gonzalo Pizarro rebelled and declared
himself Governor of Peru, his Lieutenant Carbajal seized Verdugo at
Lima, and put hhn in prison. He was afterwards allowed to go to his
own house in Truxillo. There he played the party of Gonzalo Pizarro
an extraordinary trick. A ship was at anchor in the port, and he invited
the captain and pilot to his house, and locked them up. He then looked
out of his window and Baw the Alcalde and others. He called to them,
