Two Cuban captives escape.

Rather than sailing to Baneque—as Martín Alonso Pinzón wished—Columbus had continued to explore Cuba for a few days, reconnoitering its future subjugation. He completed this exercise by the 17th, but chose not to sail for Baneque the following day, as it was a Sunday, when he preferred to worship rather than explore and would lead his crews to erect a large cross ashore.
