This being a book of prophecy, a certain appreciation of the ritualistic approach is assumed for the reader. The function of all prophecy is to discern truth and declare it, and the only restriction on the prophet is that his means shall be at all points capable of sustaining what he discovers. Anybody can write fact about a country, but nobody can write truth who does not take into account the sounds and swings of its native nomenclature.
There is a peculiar flourish to the names of distinctive places, as of eminent men, proceeding out of the heart of their life. Who would have the most revered President called anything but Abraham ? And who would not readily pick up the tune to which New Mexico was settled, from the exactly sounded rhythms of Don Juan de Onate, Gobernador, Capitan Generale y Adelantado de Nueve Mexico? -- ^not one syllable of which is pronounced in English as it is spelled. You would know at once that such a founder would choose his capital badly and move it two or three times. Thus you will save yourself much time by consulting the glossary at the back whenever in these pages you strike the Spanish trail.
