The Letter of Columbus on the Discovery of America, by Christopher Columbus

October 12, 2021

Rescued by chance was a letter of Columbus telling of his voyages - of the amazing bargains made with timid natives -- of Amazon women who fought like men and made marriage treaties with cannibals. (Volume 43, Harvard Classics)
