The state visit to Guinea and Cape Verde by Craveiro Lopes, whom he escorted due to his protocol responsibilities, seemed never ending. On the other hand he kept a beautiful memory of the President's official visit to London (25-28 October 1955). This visit gave him the opportunity to publish another work, entitled Uma velha Aliança (An Old Alliance), where he retraced the structure of the Portuguese-British friendship through official texts that had united the two countries, from the 1353 trade treaty to the agreement on the use of facilities in the Azores, from 17 August 1943. Marcello Caetano, then Minister of the Presidency, wished to see him as National Secretary of Information, Popular Culture and Tourism, a position he held for a brief period (6 February 1956 to 9 January 1958) and which he did not enjoy. Despite his attempts to freshen up Palácio Foz by releasing banned plays, active politics did not seduce him. "I deeply desired to leave that hornet's nest, where I had inadvertently entered, without mask and gloves" (Memorial, p. 90).
