James Lucena and his daughter-in-law Joanna Leonora Lucena wrote to John Kean, addressed to Beaufort. James wrote in response to a letter John wrote to his son John Charles, who is currently touring in Portugal. John "succeeded in the agency" of Port Wine Business in Great Britain. James is concerned about his “Alien property in America” and enquires about Negros working on his account. He advises John that a loan from Holland is more practical than Portugal. Joanna Leonora Lucena describes cultural differences, beautiful Sintra, and the death of a mutual friend.
