Chapter Summary

This chapter will examine Portuguese initiatives relating to measures in war and commerce and, briefly, relating to 'soft factors', in order to illuminate the Portuguese struggles for survival in the 1740s. In the final section, the transition to João's son will be briefly discussed. Given the heavy commitments in materiel, men and ships, the failure of the Mombasa expedition culminating in 1730 dealt a severe blow to the Estado. Captain Sousa Pereira's report dealt with the financial aspects of the proposed northern campaign. The report suggested how the finances required for the enterprise might be raised, and then went on to argue why the enemy could not be bought over. To bring-up the Dumó family again, the Portuguese in India once again required the help of this native family during their campaign of re-conquest.
