The Marquez de Queluz responded with O barão do Rio da Prata nu e cru, tal qual é e sempre foi, Rio de Janeiro 1830, and the Baron apparently had the final word with Resposta ao ultimo opusculo do . Marquez de Queluz, pelo seu menor admirador ., Rio de Janeiro 1830. Provenance: The Quinta das Lagrimas library was one of the greatest formed in Portugal during the nineteenth century.
