In 1805 the British traveller John Turnbull published A Voyage round the world in the years 1800, 1801, 1802, 1803, and 1804. In his diary Turnbull describes the environment he found in several places he visited during his journey, including Baía de Todos os Santos, where he stayed for five days in August, 1800. What follows is a fragment of Turnbulls journal - with an explanatory introduction - in which he presents his impressions about Brazil and its relationship with Portugal during those years.
