Le Capitaine de Frégate Auguste de Castilho, Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur, Commandant supérieur des forces navales portugaises dans l'Amérique du Sud. II. Le Conseil de Guerre. Acte d'accusation. Réponse au nom du commandant de Castilho. III. Documents mentionnés dans le texte. "Acte D'Accusation: Pendant la guerre civile du Brésil, à l'époque de la révolte des amiraux brésiliens, Custodio José de Mello et Saldanha de Gama, le capitaine de frégate Auguste de Castilho, commandant la corvette Le Mindello et les forces navales en station dans l'Amérique du Sud, qui avait mission de protéger les sujets portugais qui y sont établis, s'est écarté de sa vraie ligne de conduite, violant la stricte neutralité qu'il devait maintenir dans une pareille crise comme étranger à la lutte. Il a offert asyle à bord des bâtiments portugais à Saldanha de Gama, quand celui-ci ne s'était pas encore rangé du côté de la révolte, c'est-à-dire tandis que Gama etait, disait-il, sollicité du côté des deux partis opposés, et il lui a spontanément offert un asyle à bord des vaisseaux portugais. Cet offre a été renouvelé ensuite pour le cas où l'amiral serait contraint d'abandonner la lutte où il se trouvait engagé." The accusation of favoritism & interference was ultimately dismissed. Admiral Castilho is pictured on an Angolan postage stamp. Printed paper covers torn, chipped, worn; good+. Stock#30033.
