Excerpt from With the Invader: Glimpses of the Southwest
Whether it be true that all races came originally from the Atlantis of Homer, and that the Toltecs and Aztecs and Indians of the West and Southwest once inhabited that island supposed to exist opposite the entrance to the Mediterranean or that the original inhabitants of the Rio Grande Valley were an indige nous people, or that they migrated to the far west from Egypt, matters but little, and is, after all, only a ques tion of interest to the closest student of history and mythology.
That the works of art left by the Toltecs and Aztecs resemble those found in Egypt and in Peru, is indis putable. But whether the west supplied the east or vice versa is a mystery which has not been affected by the most learned theories and investigations. The events of the past are clouded by time; the record of prehistoric changes was never written. The Incas of Peru, the Aztecs of Mexico, the Pueblos of Arizona, the Utes, Apaches, Arapahoes, and the Delawares of the north may claim kinship with the Esquimaux around the north pole, or with the dwellers by the waters of the Nile, and none can dispute with them, for the past Is all a blank.
