Next Saturday He Advanced Thirty Leagues Farther, Admiring The Beauty And Extent Of The Island, And Passing Cabo De Padre Y Hijo, Or Cape Father And Son, Puerto Sacro, Or Sacred Port, And Cabo De Les Enamorados, Or Lovers Cape.

Near this last cape an extraordinarily large bay was discovered, three leagues wide, having a small island in the middle.

He remained for some time at this place, on purpose to observe an eclipse which was expected to take place on the 17th, the opposition of Jupiter and the moon, and the conjunction of the sun and Mercury in opposition to Jupiter. At this place the admiral sent a boat on shore for water, where some men were found armed with bows and arrows, from one of whom they bought a bow and some arrows, and persuaded him to go on board to visit the admiral. When asked for the habitation of the Caribbees, this person pointed to the eastwards; and when asked where gold was to be had, he pointed towards the island of Porto Rico, saying it produced much guania, or pale gold, which is highly valued by the Indians. The admiral gave this man two pieces of red and green cloth, and some glass beads, and then set him on shore. Fifty-five naked Indians lay in ambush in the wood, but the Indian who had been on board, made them lay down their arms and come to the boat. These men wore their hair long, like the Spanish women, having their heads ornamented with large plumes of feathers.
