In recent years, the number of studies on the Portuguese First Republican experience has tripled. The centennial commemoration of the Republican regime in 2010 was a powerful incentive. The aim of this article is to provide a synthetic but comprehensive view of the difficulties Portuguese public health authorities faced during the First Republic’s regime (1910-1926), focusing on the difficulties exacerbated by the war (food shortages, social and political unrest). The article examines the structure of the public health authority as well as its response to specific health crises (typhus, flu, smallpox epidemics) and long-term endemic diseases, particularly tuberculosis.

(September 2014) () Battle of Swally (Suvali) Part of the Tenth voyage to India Eighteenth-century engraving showing the battle of Swally delivered on 9-10 December 1612 between ships of the Bristish East India Company and the Portuguese Navy Date 29–30 November 1612 (Julian calendar); 9-10 December 1612 (Gregorian calendar) Location,,,: Result Victory for Belligerents • Commanders and leaders Captain Thomas Best Unknown Strength Four Four, 26. Contents • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • Importance [ ] This relatively small naval battle is historically important as it marked the beginning of the end of Portugal's commercial monopoly over India, and the beginning of the ascent of the 's presence in India. This battle also convinced the English East India Company to establish a small navy to safeguard their commercial interests from other European powers and also from pirates.
This small beginning is regarded as the root of the modern. The background to this battle also points to the main reason for the Dutch being organised in 1602. Background [ ] This battle was the result of the Portuguese monopoly over trade with India in the late-15th and 16th centuries. Two English ventures, The Company of Merchant Adventurers (established 1551) which became the in 1555, and the English East India Company also known as 'John Company', (established 1600) were desperately attempting to find routes to the and the. The following three individuals played a key part in the events leading up to this battle: Ralph Fitch [ ] The Portuguese guarded their new-found routes to Asia very well.
During July, 1583 an English merchant, was arrested for spying at Ormuz (near the modern port of ). He was on a voyage from to the Indian Ocean in his ship, Tiger, via what is now using the river. Ralph was presented before the Portuguese in where he was placed under arrest. He was released on the provided by priests, but escaped from Goa and wandered around India for several years. He returned to England in 1591, and became a valuable consultant for the Company. Jan Huyghens van Linschoten [ ] (1563–1611) was a Dutch traveller and historian who also served as the Portuguese Viceroy's secretary in between 1583 and 1588.
He returned to in 1592. He published a book, Itinerario in 1596 (later published as an English edition as Discours of Voyages into Y East & West Indies) which graphically displayed for the first time in Europe, detailed maps of voyages to the East Indies, particularly India. During his stay in Goa, abusing the trust put in him by the Viceroy, Jan Huyghens meticulously copied the top-secret charts page-by-page. Even more crucially, Jan Huyghens provided nautical data like currents, deeps, islands and sandbanks, which was absolutely vital for safe navigation, along with coastal depictions to guide the way.
His publications were also responsible for the establishment of the Dutch East India Company ( Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie) in 1602 to unify Dutch efforts at trade with Asia. Sir William Hawkins, First envoy [ ] led the first voyage of the English East India Company to India and sailed into the port of on 24 August 1608 aboard the Hector. He had with him 25,000 pieces of gold and a personal letter to the Emperor (sometimes also rendered as Cehangir or Ichan Guire) from King seeking trade concessions. He persisted for over two years, however Portuguese pirates stole his gold, and tried several times to murder him while on shore. He returned to England empty-handed.
The next envoy, Paul Canning, lasted only a few months. Tenth voyage [ ] The initial voyages of the English East India Company were not necessarily to India. Each voyage was a venture in itself, separately funded by issuance of subscription stock.
An eighth voyage was led in 1611 by Captain to Japan. The ninth voyage (February 1612 – August 1615) was to India and. The tenth voyage (1612–1614) on behalf of the English East India Company was led by Captain. It set out from on 1 February 1612 passing via the present day [ ], then on 3 September 1612 eventually reaching on 5 September 1612.
Surat was the principal port for the Mughals, and was then situated at the mouth of the river. Battle [ ] Coincidentally, on 13 September 1612 a squadron of 16 Portuguese barks sailed into Surat. On 22 September 1612 Captain Best decided to send an emissary to the Emperor asking for permission to trade and settle a factory at Surat.
If refused he planned to quit the country. This may have been partly because King James I had extended the Company's charter in 1609 on the basis that it would be cancelled if no profitable ventures were concluded within three years. On 30 September 1612 Captain Best got news that two of his men, Mr Canning (the ) and William Chambers were arrested while on shore. Fearing the worst, Captain Best detained a ship belonging to the of and offered to release it in exchange for his men. On 10 October Captain Best and his ships sailed to Suvali, a small town about 12 miles (19 km) North of Surat.
This may have been because the (Sardar Khan?) was battling a rebellion at a fort situated in the town. Between 17–21 October, amidst negotiations he managed to obtain a treaty with the Governor allowing trading privileges, subject to ratification by the Emperor. On 27 November, Captain Best was advised by his men on shore that a squadron of four Portuguese ships was sailing up to attack him. The Portuguese ships (four great galleons and some twenty-six oared barks) arrived on the 28th, and anchored outside the roadstead placing the English vessels between themselves and the town. A skirmish took place between the two navies on the 29th without much damage to either side. At daylight on 30 November, Captain Best in sailed through the four larger Portuguese ships running three of them aground, and was joined by Hosiander on the other side. The Portuguese managed to get the three galleons refloated.
At 9pm that night in an attempt to set the English ships alight, a bark was sent towards them as a. But the English watch was alert, and the bark was sunk by cannon fire with the loss of eight lives. A standoff remained until 5 December, when Captain Best sailed for the port of. Tenth voyage continues [ ] On 6 January 1613, Captain Best received a letter from the Emperor ratifying the treaty, which was presented by the Governor. Captain Best then ordered one of his men, Anthony Starkey, on 16 January to leave for England, via land, carrying letters of their success. Mr Starkey was later poisoned by two Jesuit friars. Captain Best then continued on to on 18 January, and then onwards to Sumatra, before returning to England around April 1614 without returning to India.
Impact on Mughals [ ] This event sufficiently impressed the Sardar (Governor) of Gujarat, who reported it to the Emperor. Thereafter the Emperor was more favourable towards the English than the Portuguese. Another factor that may have influenced him was that the Portuguese were very anti-, and often harassed -bound pilgrim ships along the West coast of India. Ships involved [ ] English East India Company [ ] (Most references to this battle mention only the first 2 ships. James and Solomon were also part of the eighth voyage) • • Hosiander • James • Solomon Portugal [ ] 4 galleons 26 oared barks Swally [ ] Swally is the anglicization of. Suvali port is close to the modern day village of Suvali, located in, India. The port was constructed by the English as they found it protected both from sudden squalls and military attacks.
Besides, the English found it convenient to use the place for their early trade with Surat as Swally was navigable in low tides. There were several complications in using the ports at Surat as the French and the Portuguese also operated from there.
R Sengupta, the Chief Project Co-ordinator (coastal and marine ecology) of GES advised that, 'The port was also better than those located in the mouth of river. The English did not allow anyone to use the port at Swally and used to charge duty for permission to do so.' See also [ ] • • • References [ ]. Archived from on 20 December 2015.
