Excerpt from History Notes for Fifth Grade: Revised 1904

The land was one of the Bahama Islands, and Co lumbus took possession of it for Spain, naming it San Salvador. He called the people there, Indians, for he thought he had reached one of the islands of the Indies. After remaining here a few days, Columbus sailed south and discovered other islands, the largest ones being Cuba and Hayti.

When he returned to Spain, Columbus was received with great honor.

He made a second voyage in 1493, in which he dis covered Jamaica and Porto Rico. In his third voyage, in 1498, he reached the continent of South America, near the mouth of the Orinoco River. During this third voyage, he remained nearly two years at Hayti. The Spanish here rebelled against his authority, and the king sent out a new governor who sent Columbus back in chains to Spain. The king released him, but treated him with ingratitude and unkindness.

The fourth and last voyage of Columbus, in 1502, took him to Central America and the Isthmus of Panama. Returning to Spain, he lived in poverty and neglect the rest of his life. To the end of his life, Columbus thought the lands he had found were parts of Asia. Spain founded its claims to America chie?y on the voyages of Columbus.
