16th of March, 1521

Saturday, the 16th of March, 1521, we arrived at daybreak in sight of a high island, three hundred leagues distant from the before-mentioned Thieves’ island. This isle is named Zamal.[123] The next day the captain-general wished to land at another uninhabited island near the first,[124] to be in greater security and to take water, also to repose there a few days. He set up there two tents on shore for the sick, and had a sow[125]killed for them.
