the fogivness was true
The want for a treaty was seeming genuine, but the Mexicans asked Cortes to wait six days before deciding. At this point the Mexicans and the Tlascians were fighting over the protection of Cortes and the Conquistadors. Cortes later choses to follow the Tlascians and their offers The Conquistadors begin their march to the capitol of Tlascala Cortez asked the Tlascalians if they would be willing to give up their worship of wackie gods and rituals. And worship Lord Jesus Christ. The Tlascalians replied that they will be willing in due time because it would be hard for them to switch just like that...

The Tlascalians said that they had a diety that said that they would have men like Cortes's come and conqure them... The Tlascalians told the Conquistadors about something that was near.... A A Volcano!!!! A volcanoe A Volcano!!!! What was it? A Volcano!! One of Cortes' companions, Ordaz, Climbed the volcano and reported to Cortes. Every one in Cortes' civilization was astonished... Back to the actual story.... Some of the Conquistadors thought it would be a good idea to attack Montezuma and the Mexicans because of their wealth and prosperity. Others disagreed with this idea because of how little Cortes' army was... Right after the decision to attack Montezuma came about, four of his men showed up with gifts asking if Cortes would come see their city... The Conquistadors eventually decide to go to Mexico to try and make friends... The Tlascalians offered to send 10,000 warriors with Cortes just in case...
