The kind-hearted D. João VI, concerned with the plight of Portuguese citizens still living in the newly independent Brazil, had before his death in 1826 ordered a fund to be set up for the relief of needy persons living there.   Precise details are given of the sums raised, and the names of donors, and for whom the monies were destined, with the name of each person and the amount granted, the majority being in the state of Bahia.
