"Guatemozin, on landing, was escorted by a company of infantry to the presence of the Spanish Commander. He mounted the azortea, with a calm and steady step, and was easily to be distinguished from his attendant nobles, though his full dark eye was no longer lighted up with its accustomed fire, and his features wore an expression of passive resignation, that told little of the fierce and fiery spirit that burned within. Cortes' came forward with a dignified and studied courtesy to receive him. The Aztec monarch probably knew the person of his conqueror, for he first broke silence by saying: 'I have done all that I could to defend myself and my people. I am now reduced to this state. You will deal with me, Malinche, as you list.'"--From Prescott's Conquest of Mexico, Vol. iii, p. 205 & 206. [P. 4; the word "azortea" appears in italics in the catalogue.]
