Topic: [Translation from the German of Von Humboldt. Colon was convinced of the existence of the South American continent, from the huge volume of fresh water entering the sea at the mouth of the Orinoco. When he found it, Humboldt says, he thought he was approaching Eden, "the holy residence of primitive man". Humboldt describes his own journey to its source, praising and re-invoking the poetical language of Colon, which "shows anew that the creative phantasy of the poet expresses itself in the exploring navigator".]
