Excerpt

ja o epitaphio do immortal infante D. Henrique.

Proseguem os descobrimentos. Pedro de Cintra chega ao cabo de Santa Maria. Pedro Escobar e João de Santarem vão á Mina. Deixa Lopo Gonçalves o seu nome ao cabo que avista. Fernando Pó descobre as ilhas de S. Thomé, do Principe, de Anno Bom, e a Formosa, que depois tomou o seu nome. Manda el-rei D. João II a Diogo de Azambuja que levante o castello de S. Jorge da Mina, e expede Diogo Cam para proseguir no reconhecimento da costa. Em 1484 acerta Diogo Cam com o rio Zaire, desembarca na margem do sul, e, tomando conta das terras adjacentes em nome do rei de Portugal, alli assenta um padrão em signal da sua passagem, e para assegurar no futuro a posse que hoje nos pretendem contestar. Ainda em 1859, passados 375 annos, tivemos o gosto de ver e tocar o pouco que existia de tão valiosa reliquia. Seguiu Diogo Cam para o sul, e no cabo Negro levantou padrão egual ao que deixára no Zaire
