Page 36 - A perlVot flint kuife. maker (Fig. 15). It is nearly five inches in length and measures almost two inches in width and not more than a quarter of an inch in thickness, with an even, sharp edge all around. Another flint which was sharp enough to be used as a knife, showed no finish whatever.
Page 72 - It would appear from this that Coronado, after leaving the village at or near Great. Bend, continued in a northeasterly course, and either followed down the Smoky Hill, or crossed that stream and also the Saline, Solomon, and Republican forks, reaching Kansas river not far from Junction City.

Page 72 - After learning what they could about the province, the Spaniards then .... retraced their steps for two or three days, where they provided themselves with fruit and corn for the return journey .... This place was probably but a few miles from the present Salina
Page 72 - by the needle." From these premises, which are broad enough to be safe, I should be inclined to doubt if Coronado went much beyond the south branch of Kansas river, if he even reached that stream. Coronado probably spent more days on his march than General Simpson allowed for, but I do not think that he traveled nearly so far as General Simpson supposed. Coronado also returned to Cicuye by a direct route, which was about two-thirds as long as that of the outward march. The distances given for...
