1827. Carta de Gerónimo Desen para Manuel López, capitán de caballería.

Author(s) Gerónimo Desen      
Addressee(s) Manuel López      
In English

Letter from Gerónimo Desen to Manuel López, a cavalry captain.

The author writes Manuel López to tell him that he must not give secret information to anyone, and to warn him about the risks that carelessness would involve.

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 harbouring 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.
