The Life of Cortes

Thesis

EXCERPT FROM THE LIFE OF HERNAN CORTES
“”When I saw the discord and animosity between these two peoples I was not a little pleased, for it seemed to further my purpose considerably; consequently I might have the opportunity of subduing them more quickly, for as the saying goes, “divided they fall”…And I remember that one of the Gospels says, “Omne regnum….” So I maneuvered one against the other and thanked each side for their warnings and told each that I held his friendship to be of more worth than the other’s”(Hernan cortes).. .
