    Excerpt from Great-Grandmother's Girls in New Mexico: 1670-1680

    The author of the following story began her explorations where the Spaniards ended, - at the southern boundary of Colorado. The worthy friars' chronicle served her as a trusty guide-book, and it is certainly remarkable that a journal of travel written three hundred years ago can be so completely verified at the present dav. As our party journeyed from pueblo to pueblo, we became more and more interested in this strange, weird people and their remarkable history, their civilization old when the May¿ower landed, their archi tecture and dress recalling a visit to the land of the Moors.

    The hot sunshine and the desert coloring were African in effect, while the grave, dark people in their white cotton garments, with a dash of red, bound turban-wise about their brows, recalled the Moors of Tangiers. It was all a bit of Morocco transplanted to our own country, woven blankets repeating the Oriental pattern of prayer-rugs, and water-jugs of Saracenic shape and decoration carried by the women with the same stately poise of the caryatids. So we were struck by their picturesqueness; but as we came to know the patient people better, their gentleness, their hospitality, and their wrongs, we warmed to a deeper feeling of sympathy and championship.
