  • News reached Montezuma that strangers had landed on the coast, he was unsure how to deal with them.
  • He sent them lavish gifts and a message that they would not be able to meet him in person, trying his best to discourage them from coming to Tenochtitlan
  • But Cortes would've interpreted this as an attempt to bribe them
  • In return, Cortes sent back glass ornaments, bracelets and embroidered caps. These gifts were meant to insult Montezuma
