[1826]. Carta de Carlos Puerto, pseudónimo de Juan Caldas Montes, para Manuel López, capitán de caballería.

Author(s) Juan Caldas Montes      
Addressee(s) Manuel López      
In English

Letter from Carlos Puerto, pseudonym of Juan Caldas Montes, to Manuel López, a cavalry captain.

The author recommends Manuel López not to criticise his colleagues, because there has already been complaints about that. Moreover, he recommends him to follow the instructions he is given and to never reveal the identity of his interlocutors.

The General Police Administration was closely monitoring the activities of foreign citizens residing in Portugal, also controlling their communications, in collaboration with the superintendent of the Posts. This letter is part of this intercepted correspondence from those Spanish military and intellectuals who, fleeing the absolutist Spain, had taken refuge in Portugal and were suspected of harboring liberal ideas and of plotting to overthrow Fernando VII and establish a constitutional regime.

If there is no translation for the letter itself, you may copy the text (while using the view 'Standardization') and paste it to an automatic translator of your choice.
