Some potentially useful sources

Thanks again Dean,
If you manage to locate the correspondence between SSS and Dom João I would be grateful.
In relation to the account of SSS and his contribution, contemporary and near contemporary accounts are always useful, but - as I’m sure you’re aware - do need to be treated with caution at times.

With respect, for British policy, see:
