Mensagem:  The quizz (sic) was out of haste, it did meant quiz, hehe.

In fact, it seems like Ramalho wasn´t onshore to welcome Cabral, you rightly pointed that Cabral came to Bahia state.  Ramalho lived in Sao Paulo, so geographically it wouldn´t add up.
The truth is that Ramalho helped the Portuguese that came to Brazil, but well later.
The very birth date of Ramalho (1492 or 1493) in Voucea distric, Portugal wouldn´t
turn possible him being in Brazil by 1490 like many people say.
Indeed he helped the Portuguese Martin Afonso de Sousa in his oficial (400-men) expedition to Brazil in 1530.
Perhaps Ramalho lied about his age in his will, in Brazil; and people jumped to the conclusion he was born long before he was born.
And, actually Brazilian and Portuguese historians flawed  his accounts (they had their own agendas), and we maybe will never will know some things.
For example, the issue of who came first, the Dutch, the Spanish, other Portuguese navigator? Who knows?
