In February 1783, the Minister of the Indies sent from Madrid to Havana the order to arrest Francisco de Miranda. Aware of this, Miranda fled on June 1, 1783, to the United States. That Journey from Havana to New Jersey is this book.
In the United States, Miranda passes through Charleston, Philadelphia and Boston, and deals with various characters of high society in evenings and walks.
During his time in the United States, Miranda met George Washington in Philadelphia, General Henry Knox, and Samuel Adams. In addition, he visited Princeton College and had a favorable impression.

Havana. La Mar, 1 June 1783
At nine o’clock in the morning I set sail on the American sloop. The Prudent his captain J. Wilson: my good friend Don Ignacio Menocal was to see me and say goodbye until the last moment, offering me his conduct every day more and more grounds to admire his probity and sound judgment in the center of vice and corruption. O pleasant idea to my memory! Likewise, the entire Spanish squadron and convoy was made to sail under the orders of Lieutenant General Don Josef Solano heading to Cádiz, carrying on board most of the army of operations and worth about 60 million pesos in kind and fruits; whose products had been withheld in our America since the declaration of war.

The wind and currents have been so favorable, that at dawn we only discovered two small boats of the whole squadron and convoy: at the same time we saw the bread of Matanzas; and we directed our route to the Bahamas Channel. The next day at dawn we sighted land and through it we recognized to be Cape Canaveral and consequently to be flowed. The wind continued always fresh by the W. so that on the 5th we passed the latitude of Charlestown where it was my design to land; but good Captain Wilson, either because the wind was not very favourable, or because it did not suit him, which is most true, proceeded of course to the North Carolina, notwithstanding the adjustment and promise he gave to my friend James Seagrove to take me to Charlestown; It does not seem that he is a delicate man in this genre of matters.
