At the moment when Columbus landed, there was an instant oftranquility. But the natives, whom he remembered only six years ago as sohappy and cheerful and hospitable, had fled as far as they could. Theyshowed in every way their distrust of those who were trying to becometheir masters. On the other hand, soldiers and emigrants were eager toleave the island if they could. They were near starvation, or if they did notstarve they were using food to which they were not accustomed. Theeagerness with which, in 1493, men had wished to rush to this land ofpromise, was succeeded by an equal eagerness, in 1498, to go home fromit. The figure moved into the circle of red firelight and spoke, "It is Cairness." On the nineteenth of May Columbus executed his will, which had beenprepared at Segovia a year before. In this will he directs his son and his successors, acting as administrators, always to maintain "in the city ofGenoa, some person of our line, who shall have a house and a wife in thatplace, who shall receive a sufficient income to live honorably, as beingone of our relatives, having foot and root in the said city, as a native; sincehe will be able to receive from this city aid in favor of the things of hisservice; because from that city I came forth and in that city I was born."This clause became the subject of much litigation as the century went on. Sounds, as if some fair city were one voice 2018在线国产偷拍视频,人人曰人人上人人r看 From this expression of Fernando Columbus, there has arisen, whatMr. Harrisse calls, a "pure legend," that the chains were placed in thecoffin of Columbus. Mr. Harrisse shows good reason for thinking that thiswas not so. "Although disposed to believe that, in a moment of justindignation, Columbus expressed the wish that these tokens of the ingratitude of which he had been the victim should be buried, with him, Ido not believe that they were ever placed in his coffin."It will thus be seen that the third voyage added to the knowledge of thecivilized world the information which Columbus had gained regardingParia and the island of Trinidad. For other purposes of discovery, it wasfruitless. Another clause which was much contested was his direction to his sonDiego to take care of Beatriz Enriquez, the mother of Fernando. Diego isinstructed to provide for her an honorable subsistence "as being a personto whom I have great obligation. What I do in this matter is to relieve myconscience, for this weighs much upon my mind. The reason of this cannotbe written here."The history of the litigation which followed upon this will and uponother documents which bear upon the fortunes of Columbus is curious, butscarcely interesting. The present representative of Columbus is DonCristobal Colon de la Cerda, Duke of Veragua and of La Vega, a grandeeof Spain of the first class, Marquis of Jamaica, Admiral and SeneschalMajor of the Indies, who lives at Madrid. And naked on the Air of Heaven ride, The only other secret I had in grade school and junior high was sending part of my allowance to Billy Graham after his Little Rock crusade. I never told my parents or friends about that, either. Once when I was on my way to the mailbox near our driveway off Circle Drive with my money for Billy, I saw Daddy working in the backyard. To avoid being seen, I went out the front down to Park Avenue, turned right, and cut back through the driveway of the Perry Plaza Motel next door. Our house was on a hill. Perry Plaza was on flat land below. When I got about halfway through the drive, Daddy looked down and saw me anyway with the letter in my hand. I proceeded to the mailbox, put the letter in, and came home. He must have wondered what I was doing, but he didnt ask. He never did. I guess he had enough secrets of his own to carry.
