Saturday, 25 November 1564

I measured the sun at 14 3/4 degrees; in 24 hours we sailed 15 leagues southwest; we were at the meridian 2/4 of an hour from the sun by south west. This day, the Governor ordered the almirante to have all the pilots, captains and the King’s officials assemble. In their presence, he ordered the instructions of the King that he was bringing, to be read that they might be complied with. After getting the advice of the pilots, he ordered that they sail southeast on their way to the Islas Filipinas.
