This was attributed by Governor Eulate, and it reads "The governor and captain general of the provinces of New Mexico for the King, our lord, passed by here, returning from the Zuni pueblos on July, 29, 1620; he left them in peace, at their request, asking for his favor as vassals of his majesty, they again rendered their obedience; he did all this attention, zeal, and prudence, as such a particularly Christian gentleman and gallant soldier of unending, praiseworthy memory." What one finds interesting in this inscribed is the word "gentleman" which is highly scrathed out. A Mr. R.H. Kern an artist employed by the army in 1849, made an historical comment about this as he was documenting this site.
