"Columbus First Landing: The boats were put out with great alacrity: and Columbus got into the principal one, accompanied by a band of armed men, with flags flying, and martial music sounding. As they drew near the shore, they found it covered with vast numbers of the simple natives! whose curiousity was greatly excited by strange visitors, in every respect different from themselves." (Taylor, pp. 118-119).
