WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A 500-year-old copy of a letter in which Christopher Columbus describes his voyage to the Americas has been returned to Spain after US authorities tracked down the document, stolen and replaced with a forgery years ago. The letter, copied centuries ago from the one Columbus wrote to King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain after his first Atlantic crossing, was given to Spain’s Ambassador Pedro Morenes here, law enforcement authorities said yesterday.
