8 January 1565

Till 8 in the morning we had run 14 leagues and at that time we approached the almiranta and they fired a shot because, at the turn south, they thought they had sighted land and so the flagship and the rest of the ships sailed swiftly to the turn south till 6 or 7 in the afternoon and the ships must have sailed 10 leagues. This same day, the flagship reached the turn west by north west…

Today we were 1377 leagues from Navidad.
