[Translation of the Nahuatl (right-hand column) by James Lockhart:]
as if everything were spinning before one’s eyes. People took fright. And after the dying in Cholula, [the Spaniards] set off on their way to Mexico, coming gathered and bunched, raising dust. Their iron lances and halberds seemed to sparkle, and their iron swords were curved like a stream of water. Their cuirasses and iron helmets seemed to make a clattering sound. Some of them came wearing iron all over, turned into iron beings, gleaming,so that they aroused great fear and were generally seen with fear and dread. Their dogs came in front, coming ahead of them, keeping to the front, panting, with their spittle hanging down.
[Translation of the Spanish (left-hand column) by James Lockhart:]
After they had wrought that havoc in Cholula, the Spaniards with all their Indian friends came in a great multitude, in squadrons, with much noise and dust, and their weapons gleamed from a distance, arousing great fear in those who were looking. Likewise the greyhounds they brought with them inspired great dread, for they were large, with their mouths open and tongues hanging out, and they went along panting, and thus they inspired great fear in all who saw them.
