  5. 2 “quotes” “Hispana [Hispaniola] is marvel. The Sierras and mountains, the plains, the arable and pasture lands, are so lovely and so rich for planting and sowing, for breeding cattle of every kind, and for building towns and villages.” “They do not hold any creed nor are they idolaters; they only believe that power and good are in the heavens.. This belief is not the result of ignorance, for they are actually of very acute intelligence, they know how to navigate the seas, and it is amazing how good an account they give of everything. [instead], this belief is because they have never seen people clothed or ships such as ours.”
