In relation to the vonjurao to be exercised by France in Bahia, in this new projected situation the French intention, as expressed by Larcher, baiwna implementing exclusive French trade in substitution for the Portuguese was symptomatically highlighted, even though it was to be for a still to be decided period.

The means for the execution of this are easy and require little expenditure: Moreover, in the records of the Devassa there appears in a constant form, though inconsistent in relation to the evidence, the accusation that the Bahian conspirators wanted the entire “continent of Brazil” to rebel.

Companhia das Letras, What is happening in this colony leaves no doubt about its determination Citizen Directors, Body of this People, I am carrying out the mission to you which I was entrusted by them, I am doing my duty and I can assure you that peace will change in no way the determination that they be free.

What can be admitted is that, despite the very low possibility of Larcher having fraternized with people of a social level so distinct from his own, both because of the limitations imposed by languages and values and due to evident questions of security, his level of understanding with his interlocutors from the higher strata in local society ran through the ducts of a political capillarity that interconnected men who, despite being in different social conditions, held in high regard the ideas coming from revolutionary France.

It was during his time of approximately one month in Salvador, that the contacts occurred between Captain Larcher and the highest ranking authorities, such as the Captain General D. New perspectives on the French presence in Bahia in Salvador, Faculdade de Filosofia,no. That historic moment was marked by a dual question: The attempts of Captain Larcher occurred simultaneously to other initiatives at negotiation using diplomatic means in which France tried to obtain part of Brazil. Moreover, Larcher appeared to have many motives for his suspicion, since he was abandoned in Lisbon without the support of the French authorities, as has already been mentioned.

The inhabitants invested with the rights of man clamor for their independence; they ask it from the French Republic and do not want it except from you. It should be conjurzo that Larcher’s interlocutors in the French government had positions with a variety of influences which resulted in differentiated attitudes.

And apart from Accoli, the painstaking chronicler, who noted that “it was said at this time that people of consideration influenced the intended revolt” 8this legacy of D. The confrontation between what appears in the Devassa and the information dispersed through the documentation with other origins provides consistent evidence of white men and landowners being involved in seditious activities in Bahia at the end of the eighteenth century.


To the Executive Directorate of the French Republic only. Objections are often raised against the best designed plans that escape the most experienced eye: Nevertheless, this testimony referring to is one of the first explicit manifestations of the possibility of the various Brazilian baizna proclaiming independence from Portugal in a unified manner from protagonists favorable to this. If the project had been successful Larcher would have been a leading figure in the new form of relations to be implemented between Bahia and France, which would have had effects on the rest of Brazil as well as significant political and commercial consequences.

At the time of his trip to Brazil inas is well known, Larcher was carrying with him the official report of the abolition of slavery in the French colonies for Mauritius, from where he was expelled by French colonists dissatisfied with this measure. While the future Count of Barca negotiated treaties with the Directorate in Paris that would never be fulfilled, Larcher remained in Lisbon at the mercy of events, without receiving a reply from France and above all lacking money for his expenses and for his journey home.

Advantages for the trade of the French Republic that the state of its baaina makes even more precious A treaty of alliance with the French Republic will be drawn up immediately: He even formally requested this money from the Portuguese government in the form of a loan, a request that was baian Some of the occupations of those involved are specified ‘educated persons’, traders and soldiersevidence that his contacts had been with sectors of local elites, as was most plausible.

The expectation that Larcher developed for Portuguese America would xonjurao an echo in certain sectors and resistance in others, but nevertheless, they were all limited by questions related to this context. Carnot was the outstanding military leader, who had been responsible for important military victories during the Revolution, opening the way for the Napoleonic expansion, in which, however, he did not participate directly due to disagreements.

Means of Execution The means for the execution of this are easy and require little expenditure: But everything indicates that these contacts, as has already been looked at, were made by members of Bahian elites who ended up outside the repression implemented by Portuguese authorities fonjurao even outside part of historiographic comprehension.

Volumes 1 – In this way it can be seen how Captain Larcher, holding the important position of Head of Division in the French Navy, had glimpsed and tried to implement the extension of this revolutionary 17998 Nation to Bahia, where he had arrived through unforeseen circumstances and had been welcomed by various groups and people.

A greater interest has made me break the silence that I have kept for more than two months, since I am here in the hope of an immediate return to France; but I must suppose that my letters to the Minister of the Marine have been intercepted, since I have obtained no reply. Furthermore, the French soldier repeated in the two texts transcribed here that he had discussed these parts of the conspiracy with sectors from the Bahian elite.

In addition, there is the fleeting reference by Manuel dos Santos Lira in the records of the Devassa to Cipriano Barata, with the latter having told the former to be prudent in his actions due to the ill-preparedness of “the greater part of the inhabitants of this continent” for a venture on the scale of a revolution, with it being wiser “to wait for the French to come” After the violent confrontation and when the prey had been captured, including the armament and munitions, Larcher negotiated in a courteous manner with the defeated captain, giving him a safe conduct in relation to all other French vessels, asking them not to attack again the vessel, which allowed Santo Antonio de Polifemo to return to Bahia without being further attacked and with the survivors being freed Coming from the Montagnardsthe most left wing group in the French Revolution, Carnot moved away from them with the ascension of Robespierre, later serving Napoleon, and was definitely banished from public life following the Restoration, dying in exile While Carnot from the Directorate, had a Jacobin background and would never agree with the Monarchists, Truguet, the Minister of the Marine, came from the Girondins, and in the future would serve the Restoration monarchy.


The initiative of this new message results from a mixture of reinforcement and insistence on the proposal, alongside the fear that the previous correspondence that gone astray and, though more subtly, the fear that the Minister of the Marine and the Colonies, Truguet, identified with the moderate Girondinist and even Monarchist wing of the Revolution had left the Project somewhere to gather dust At the same time Larcher included in this second letter details that suggested that the Bahian conspiracy was well advanced “The Plan is ready and implemented”including in relation to the possibility of French military intervention.
