By some bibliographers the author is wrongly supposed to be Dionisio Alcalá Galiano, commander of the expedition; Medina and Leclerc ascribe the historical introduction to Alcalá Galiano, commander of the Sutil, and Cayetano Valdés, commander of the Mexicana. Navarette (Bibl. mar. esp., t. 2, p. 65) states that Espinosa wrote the "Relación" and that he himself wrote the introduction.
