The governor to be of New Spain, sat down to pen a letter to his king.
“All ships and crews have crossed without
incident, and found the colony administered by Admiral Columbus—
although without the riches or hostile savages so described.
Before I confront the Admiral about his replacement,

sought by my king. A captured Lucayan fisherman
has told us of a place called Bimini where deep springs of freshwater
are said to cure both age and affirmity.
I will set upon this new voyage in the
first light of morning.”
