Jón The Learned, His Account

Jón the Learned wrote a critical account condemning the decision of the local sheriff to order the killings. Jón the Learned wrote about these events: Sönn frásaga af spanskra manna skipbrotum og slagi (A True Account of Spanish Men's Shipwrecks and Fighting). Jón says that they were unjustly killed; not wishing to take part in an attack on them, he fled south to Snæfellsnes.

Famous quotes containing the word account:

    I still feel just as I told you, that I shall come safely out of this war. I felt so the other day when danger was near. I certainly enjoyed the excitement of fighting our way out of Giles to the Narrows as much as any excitement I ever experienced. I had a good deal of anxiety the first hour or two on account of my command, but not a particle on my own account. After that, and after I saw that we were getting on well, it was really jolly. We all joked and laughed and cheered constantly.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)
