In the year 1519 a caravel bound for these islands left the city and harbor of Santa María de la Antigua del Darién, which is in Tierra Firme on the Gulf of Urabá in the jurisdiction of Castilla del Oro. Crossing this gulf it ran into a large storm which blew it toward Fernandina Island. Each time that the people on board found themselves sucked under the waves and almost sunk, the Mother of God pulled them up from beneath the water. Two women called the Taviras and other persons traveling in this caravel, but from these women especially, according to what was reported, there were many tears and from the others as well. In that caravel was traveling a mendicant coming from Tierra Firme with the alms collected for Our Lady of Guadalupe.
