24 February 1520

The 24th day of said month, I measured the Sun at 53o, with a declination of 5o 54’, the elevation of the South  being 42o 54’, and the course was West-Northwest, and we were along a very large bay, which we named the Bay of St Martin, because we found it on his day. We entered said bay very far and could not drop anchor until we were entirely inside and found 80 fathoms, with a perimeter of 50 leagues, and the mouth runs Northwest and has an elevation of 42o 1⁄2.
