Letter from Carlos Puerto, pseudonym of Juan Carlos Montes, to Manuel López, a cavalry captain.
The author informs Manuel López about his desire to go to France, and gives him news about various places in Spain and Portugal.
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.
