Within these pages we read of the establishment of a permanent Spanish settlement in Florida and the begining of its colonization by Spain. Along with this colonization was the duty to be messengers of God which was the great missionary work that is chronicled. The book not only records the work of the Spaniards but of the native Indians as well. The history of Saint Augustine from its founding to this day is intertwined with the Mission of Nombre de Dios Shrine of Our Lady of La Leche. It was at this sacred spot that the Spanish settlers would begin the devotion to Our Lady of La Leche that continues into the present. ( )

First words
Near the end of the fifteenth century, King Ferdinand of Aragon and Queen Isabella of Castile joined forces through marriage and finally expelled the last of the Muslims from Spain.
On Saturday the 8th, the General [Menendez] landed with many banners spread, to the sounds of trumpets and salutes of artillery. As I had gone ashore the evening before, I took a Cross and went to meet him, singing the hymn, Te Deum Laudamus. The General, followed by all who accompanied him, marched up to the Cross, knelt, and kissed it. A large number of Indians watched these proceedings and imitated all they saw done.
