SPANISH WEST-INDIES

CUBA.

CUBA is a large and very valuable illand, and by far the most

important of all the Spanish West-Indies. On the east fide it begins at 20° 21' north latitude, touches the tropic of Cancer on the north, and extends from 74 to 85° 15' west longitude. It lies fixty miles to the west of Hispaniola, twenty-five leagues north of Jamaica, one hundred miles to the east of Jucatan, and as many to the south of cape Florida, and commands the entrance of the gulphs both of Mexico and Florida, as also the windward passages. By this situation it may be called the key of the West-Indies. It was discovered by Columbus in 1492,

who gave it the name of Ferdinando, in honour of king Ferdinand of Spain, but it quickly after recovered its ancient name of Cuba. The natives did not regard Columbus with a very favourable eye at his landing, and the weather proving very tempertuous, he soon left this island, and failed to Hayta, now called Hir. paniola, where he was better received. The Spaniards, however, foon became masters of it. By the year 1511, it was totally conquered, and in that time they had destroyed, according to their own accounts, several millions of people. But the possession of Cuba was far from answering the expectations of the Spanish adventurers, whose avarice could be satiated with nothing but gold. These monsters finding that there was gold upon the island, concluded that it must come from mines, and therefore tortured the few inhabitants they had left, in order to extort from them a discovery of the places where these mines lay. The miseries endured by these poor creaVOL. IV.
