Come in Quietly

Quote From Christopher
“At daybreak great multitudes of men came to the shore, all
young and of fine shapes, very handsome; their hair not
curled but straight and coarse like horse-hair, and all with
foreheads and heads much broader than any people I had
seen; They came loaded with balls of cotton, parrots,
javelins, and other things too numerous to mention; these
they exchanged for whatever we chose to give them.
Saturday, 13 October. [1492]”
