November 1797. Another 300-mile journey by coach. Perhaps through the Spanish town of Guadalajara north west of Madrid. It must have been strange to have received such kind attention in New Spain only to be cast out by the government of Old Spain. It’s unclear what stops were made in the 45 day journey from south to north but the road in Spain would have finally wound up in San Sebastian. What condition Tom was in can only be imagined.
