Panuncillo to Tambillos
From Panuncillo to Tambillos, where there are some old Copper Mines. They are now in possession of some Englishmen, who came out as Mechanicks, but have accumulated by their industry some thousand pounds & have bought this mine, which they hope to empty of its water. Slept at a spot called the Punta; it is the point of a range of hills which abuts on an extensive plain, precisely in the same manner as a headland in the sea.
