Look inside the book:
The marine expedition was undertaken by two ships, under the command of Fernando de Alarcon, who sailed from Santiago on the 9th of May, 1540, and proceeding north-west along the coast, he reached the head of the California Gulf, in August of the same year. ...An attempt was made, soon after, to establish a colony at Port Monterey; but the party under Portola that went in search of the place, passed further 22 on to the bay of San Francisco, and could not retrace their steps before the cold weather set in, and they then returned to San Diego. ...The next day, they were embarked on board the sloop-of-war Cyane, Commander Dupont, and sailed from Monterey for San Diego, in order to land south of the Mexican force, consisting of 500 men, under General Castro, well fortified at a place three miles from the city.
