  There is a manly letter, written with dignity and pathos, in which hepresses his claims upon them. He commissioned his brother, theAdelantado, to take this letter, and with it he went to wait upon the youngcouple. They received him most cordially, and gave flattering hopes thatthey would attend favorably to the suit. But this was too late for Columbushimself. Immediately after he had sent his brother away, his illnessincreased in violence.

  On the report of the exploring parties, four names were given to asmany divisions of the island. Junna was the most western, Attibunia themost eastern, Jachen the northern and Naiba the southern. Columbushimself, seeing the fortifications of the city well begun, undertook, inMarch, an exploration, of the island, with a force of five hundred men.

  Young readers, at least, will be specially interested to remember that itwas in this region that Robinson Crusoe's island was placed by Defoe; andif they will carefully read his life they will find discussions there of theflow of the "great River Orinoco." Crossing this gulf, Columbus hadtouched upon the coast of Paria, and thus became the first discoverer ofSouth America. It is determined, by careful geographers, that thediscovery of the continent of North America, had been made before thistime by the Cabots, sailing under the orders of England.

  Fortunately, as it proved, the wind did not serve. He sent back a boat tocommunicate with the settlement, but it fell into the hands of the savages.

  He sent out his boat with directions to carry aft an anchor and cable,but its crew escaped to the Nina with their tale of disaster. The Nina'speople would not receive them, reproached them as traitors, and in theirown vessel came to the scene of danger. Columbus was obliged to transferto her the crew of the Santa Maria.

  It proved that the ships which had arrived at the west of the islandwere under the command of Ojeda, who will be remembered as a boldcavalier in the adventures of the second voyage. Acting under a generalpermission which had been given for private adventurers, Ojeda hadbrought out this squadron, and, when Columbus communicated with him,was engaged in cutting dye-woods and shipping slaves.

  In this period of the fading life of Columbus, we have eleven lettersaddressed by him to his son. These show that he was in Seville as late asFebruary, 1505. From the authority of Las Casas, we know that he left thatpart of Spain to go to Segovia in the next May, and from that place hefollowed the court to Salamanca and Valladolid, although he was so weakand ill.
