"When we arrived, we found him lying in his bed, according to theircustom, hanging in the air, the bed being made of cotton like a net. He didnot rise, but from the bed made a semblance of courtesy, as best he knew how. He showed much feeling, with tears in his eyes, at the death of thechristians, and began to talk of it, showing, as best he could, how somedied of sickness, and how others had gone to Canoaboa to seek for thegold mine, and that they had been killed there, and how the others hadbeen killed in their town."He presented to the Admiral some gold and precious stones. One of theaccounts says that there were eight hundred beads of a stone called ciba,one hundred of gold, a golden coronet, and three small calabashes filledwith gold dust. Columbus, in return, made him a present. Chapter 10 After a year or so on the farm, Daddy decided to move into Hot Springs. He rented a big house from Uncle Raymond at 1011 Park Avenue, in the east end of town. He led Mother to believe hed made a good deal for it and had bought the house with his income and hers, but even with their two incomes, and with housing costs a considerably smaller part of the average familys expenses than now, I cant see how we could have afforded it. The house was up on a hill; it had two stories, five bedrooms, and a fascinating little ballroom upstairs with a bar on which stood a big rotating cage with two huge dice in it.

Fortunately for all parties, on Sunday, the third day of the voyage, while they were still in sight of land, the Pintacame in sight. Martin Pinzon came on board the Nina and offered excusesfor his absence. Columbus was not really satisfied with them, but heaffected to be, as this was no moment for a quarrel. He believed thatPinzon had left him, that, in the Pinta, he might be alone when hediscovered the rich gold-bearing island of Babeque or Baneque. Althoughthe determination was made to return, another week was spent in slowcoasting, or in waiting for wind. It brought frequent opportunities formeeting the natives, in one of which they showed a desire to take some oftheir visitors captive. This would only have been a return for a capturemade by Pinzon of several of their number, whom Columbus, on hismeeting Pinzon, had freed.
