John Lloyd Stephens
“No remnant of this race hangs around the ruins, with traditions
handed down from father to son and from generation to generation.
It lay before us like a shattered bark in the midst of the ocean, her
masts gone, her name effaced, her crew perished, none to tell whence
she came, to whom she belonged, how long on her voyage, or what
caused her destruction—her lost people to be traced only by some
fancied resemblance in the construction of the vessel, and perhaps,
never to be known at all.”
                                        - John Lloyd Stephens
