Example text

The Spanish monarch told Pizarro that he might be governor of all the land he subdued, and in addition he might keep half the gold he found. But the King did not give him any money with which to buy ships and supplies. Pizarro was not daunted, however, by this.

He then started on his march inland to meet Atahualpa, who was the King of the country.

But as they departed over the bridge that connected the city with the mainland, the Mexicans discovered them, and began a merciless attack upon them.
