Following are rough notes of Ferrer's presentation, taken by Stuart Maxwell on June 19, 2004.

  • Revolutionaries and French troops often evacuated to Cuba, providing a source for the transmission of ideas.
  • [?Misheard some part of this?] The official paper of the government of Spain had pretty animated pieces of news from the revolt in Haiti. There were weekly serial installments.
