Additional comments.
1. Death Announcement in the Philadelphia National Gazeite
It is with deep regret that we record the death of DON JUAN BAUTISTA BERNABEU, His Catholic Majesty’s Consul General for the United States. This distinguished gentleman sunk, on the 3d inst., under a very painful malady, which he bore for a long time with exemplary fortitude. He was born in Alicante, in Spain on the 14th of June 1772, and served his King, in honorable stations, upwards of forty years. A more loyal and zealous Spaniard never lived; and his enthusiastic devotion to the character and welfare of his country, and thorough performance of official duties give title to favors from the Spanish government, his very respectable family may claim much on his account, from its gratitude, justice, and liberality.
