They show themselves simple in their talk, and are very sharp and cunning in securing their ends. They speak little, and in a low voice. They use the same accents as ourselves, forming their words either on the palate, the teeth, or the lips, only they have other words for things.

It is in favour of Lariab that the Italian version was probably printed from the manuscript without previous translation ; while the version containing Parias was translated into French, and then into Latin, before it wras printed. On the other hand, there is strong reason for the belief that the editor of the Latin version had not then heard of the particulars of the third voyage of Columbus, or of the name of Paria.
