« El Libertador », Venezuelan military and political leader. Signed letter, Bogota 27 November 1828, to his friend José Angel ALAMO in Caracas; 2 pages, in-4 format (foxing to paper; small slitting to folds; a few wormholes; repairs); in Spanish; in a red cloth and half-morocco folder with a photogtaphic portrait on the inner upper board.
Interesting letter touching on the Conspiracy in September waged against him. Bolivar is president of Gran Columbia where he had declared dictatorship from 27 August 1828. A coalition of liberals and military men attempted to take over the presidential palace: Bolivar escaped by the window. The conspiracy was severely repressed including such leaders as SANTANDER (1792-1840) punished for his passivity. In this letter, Bolivar mentions his elder sister Maria Antonia BOLIVAR (1777-1842). Bolivar Hames Alamo for this letter of 20 October full of useful information. Alamo must be aware of the cause of the conspiracy. SANTANDER (1792-1840) was arrested in Boca Chica and his supporters sent to Puerto Cabello rather than exile. All will be done to annilhate the rebels. Cartas del Libertador. Memorias del general O’Leary, t. XXXI, p. 234. Archivo del Libertador, doc. 1840.
