[The Burial of the Heart of Copil.]

We have told how the heart of Copil, the son of the woman who went to Mechuacan  *  was interred at Tinustitan, and the reason why was that one day when Coautliquezçi was standing beneath a hut built of branches there appeared before him Vchilogos, and ordered him to bury the heart in that place, for in that place was to be his home, and he went there for that reason, and was buried there.
