Of the Province of Carthagena.

THis Province is distant from the Island of St. Martha toward the West 50. miles, and is situated upon the confines of the Kingdome of Cerusia, being stretched upon the sea coast to the Bay of Vraba a hundred miles in length, South ward it is also stretch∣ed to a very great length. These Provinces from the year 1498. to this present year were handled after a most cruel manner, and depopulated with several kindes of slaugh∣ters, as it happened in the Islands of St. Martha: but that I may come to a quick con∣clusion I shall cease to speak of every par∣ticular, that I may make hast to the rehear∣sal of those detestable crimes which they committed in other Countreys.
