The first document on a trans - Atlantic sugar transaction
In his second voyage to the New World, Columbus sent a memorial, through Antonio Torres, to the Spanish Catholic Kings, Fernando and Isabel. The memorial was written in January 30, 1494 at the first European town in America, Isabella, Hispanola Island.
This document is certainly the first document of a trans - Atlantic sugar transaction!
