Homework Help: Social Studies

Posted by Laruen on Wednesday, November 16, 2011 at 7:22pm.

I have this assignment for ss that is due on monday.

Here it is (the assignment paper)

LETTER TO QUEEN ISABELLA
In 1492, Queen Isabella of Spain provided an Italian explorer and navigator, Christopher Columbus with 3 small ships the Nine, The Pinta, and the Santa Maria. She gave him a permission to search for a new all-water route to Far East. Columbus had convinced the Queen of Spain that he could get to India and China by sailing west.
How did Columbus persuade the Queen to give him money and ship? Imagine yourself as Christopher Columbus. Write a persuasive letter to Queen Isabella giving her the mayor seasons for sailing west. You must have THREE reasons and explain them (3 supporting details).


This is what I wrote so far

My most exalted Monarch - Your Majesty Queen Isabella
I am writing this letter most humbly for you to consider my request for three small ships and a crew so that I may sail west and find the shortest route to the East. I will present my reasons for my request.
First, itís quicker to reach Asia by sailing west. As we know the earth is round. When I proposed to reach India by sailing west from Spain, I knew that the earth was round. I believed that sailing west would be quicker than going around Africa. I calculated the size of the earth and found that distance to Asia is shorter if you go west. I research and studied all the existing maps to prove my theory. We will be able to beat Portugal to the riches of Asia.
Furthermore, any people I find I will convert to Christianity.

I hope the reasons I have listed above will convince you to give me your support.

Your most grateful and respectful servant,
Christopher Columbus
