Abstract
This article presents newly discovered documents regarding Augustine James Ormond and reevaluates the bibliography available about him. Mr. Ormond provides one of the three testimonials from contemporaries of Fernando Pessoa about the life of the young poet in Durban, South Africa. After revisiting the research of Alexandrino Severino, João Gaspar Simões, Hubert Jennings and Roy Campbell concerning Mr. Ormond and his relationship with Pessoa, this contribution exhibits a dossier, including: facsimiles and critical transcriptions of documents found in the Fernando Távora private collection, as well as one drafted letter Pessoa addressed to Ormond himself, a document located at the National Library of Portugal.
