Assistance in deciphering record from ship manifest

All,

I'm having a little bit of trouble deciphering some of the writing on a record of a ship manifest showing the arrival of my great grandfather. I've run into a brick wall finding information on his parents from other sources, and this record shows his father's name, but I'm unable to make it out.

The record is the bottom row of the attached image.

The important info that I do know from the record:

Arrival Date: 23 Apr 1911
Arrival Place: Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Name: Vicente Deponte
Age: 20
Gender: Male
Calling or Occupation: Laborer
Able to Read: No
Able to Write: No
Nationality: Portugal
Race or People: Portuguese
Last Residence: Sao Vicente, Madeira
Name and Address of Nearest Relative in country of departure: This is the part I need the most help with. I see it's his father, in Sao Vicente, but I can't make out the name.
Final Destination: Fall River, MA
.

.
All easy to decipher bigraphical info
.

.
Place of Birth: Sao Vicentes. Madeira

If anyone might be able make out the name, I'd be very grateful.

Thank you,
Andy
