1. Purpose: The Purpose of our expedition is to discover a faster route to the East Indies than what current path there is. I plan on the Voyage to take approximately two weeks give or take a day. Recommended way to finance us by Ferdinand and Isabella by making the city of Palos pays back a debt to the crown then by providing two of the ships, and by getting Italian financial backing for part of the expenses. Then the crown would have to pay very little. 2.
