On his arrival in Seville, where one might say he had a right to resthimself and do nothing else, Columbus engaged at once in efforts to seethat the seamen who had accompanied him in this last adventure should beproperly paid. Many of these men had been disloyal to him and unfaithfulto their sovereign, but Columbus, with his own magnanimity, represented eagerly at court that they had endured great peril, that they brought greatnews, and that the king ought to repay them all that they had earned.
