The letters and documents, dating to 1839-1841, recap the unfortunate situation of the Portuguese colony and the worsening conditions under the governorship of Joaquim Pereira Marinho. Supporting documents include letters from the citizens of Cabo Verde, merchants of Rio de Janeiro, officials in Inhambane, and the governor himself.Joaquim Pereira Marinho (Porto, ca. 1782-1854, Lisbon) was a member of the royal council, a field marshal, and a member of the Ordem de Christo and the Ordem de S. Bento de Avis. Judging from the list of his works in Innocêncio, Pereira Marinho spent considerable time defending his actions as governor of Cabo Verde and Mozambique.*** On Joaquim Pereira Marinho, see IV, 145, 454-5; XII, 129-30. For the Pregoeiro da liberdade see Costa, Dicionário de literatura goesa, III, 90. Porbase locates a single copy, at Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal. Not located in Copac.
