Letters of Amerigo Vespucci (Classic Reprint) Excerpt from Letters of Amerigo Vespucci Amerigo Vespucci appears in the Spanish records as a member of the mercantile house of Berardi, at Seville, until February, 1496. His name then wholly disappears until February, 1505, when he appears on his way to the Spanish Court, bearing a letter of introduction from Columbus to his son Diego. From the letter it appears that Vespucci had been unfortunate in his affairs. He was soon taken into favor by Fonseca, the enemy of Columbus, and rose rapidly. He received letters of naturalization, was appointed with Pinzon to command in a fleet that was to sail for the Spice Islands, but which was abandoned. He was, in 1508, appointed principal pilot, or superintendent of charts, and so remained till his death in 1512. In the interval between his disappearance from the records as a merchant in February, 1496, and his re-appearance on his way to court in February, 1505, he made his voyages.
