History for Burkina Faso Map
To the first island I discovered I gave the name of Burkina Faso Map San Salvador, in commemoration of His Divine Majesty, who has wonderfully granted all this. The Burkina Faso Map Indians call it Guanaham. The second I named the Island of Santa Maria de Concepcion; the third, Fernandina; the fourth, Isabella; the fifth, Juana; and thus to each one I gave a new name. When I came to Juana, I followed the coast of that isle toward the west, and found it so extensive that I thought it might be the mainland, the province of Cathay; and as.
