Anonymous denunciation letter sent to José Barata Freire de Lima, Superintendent of the Court and the Kingdom Police.
The author denounces Isidro Gonçalves.
The process of Isidro Gonçalves, the owner of a biscuit factory in Lisbon, the suspect of the murder of a servant of his and, simultaneously, of having dangerous political ideas, is contemporary with the liberal revolution in Portugal, during which liberal insurgents opposed the supporters of absolutism, led by the King D. Miguel. In reaction to this revolt, the forces of the regime persecuted and arrested people on the streets, simply based on common complaints and without further investigation.
