“The author of this Relation was a sea-captain who accompanied Sir Walter Raleigh in his voyage up the Orinoco in 1595. Raleigh, being unable to go himself the next year, sent Keymis to continue the explorations. He was imprisoned with Raleigh in the Tower, in 1603, and being his pilot and captain, was frequently examined in hopes that something might be extracted from him to compromise his master.
This is called the Second Voyage because Raleigh’s own, made in 1595, which was in fact the first, was not published until this same year. Castellanos, from whose work Keymis extracted the names of ‘worthie Spaniardes’, wrote a versified history of the discovery of America, which was published at Madrid, in 1589, in which he recounted the deeds of heroism performed by Spanish leaders during the first sixty years of American discovery” (Church).
