Read the following quote from a letter written by Hernan Cortes to King Charles V in 1520. “I will say no more than that the manners of the people, as shown in their intercourse with one another, are marked by as great an attention to the proprieties of life as in Spain, and good order is equally well observed; and considering that they are barbarous people, without the knowledge of God, having no intercourse with civilized nations, these traits of character are worthy of admiration.” From this quote, why is Cortes surprised by the good nature of the people?
A. They are barbaric.
B. They pay close attention to the proprieties of Spain.
C. They have good manners and good order.
D. They have no knowledge of God or other civilized nations.
