BOLIVAR Simon (1783-1830)

"El Libertador", hero and liberator of South America
L.S. "Bolivar", Bogota 8 November 1828, to his friend José
Angel ALAMO, in Caracas; 2 pages in-4, address (burnished paper, slots); in Spanish.
On the aftermath of the September Conspiracy, his gold and silver mines, and his eldest daughter Maria Antonia.

"Me alegro que se hallen tan bien por allá como U. manifiesta, y sobre todo que esté U. tan brioso, porque esto, segun U. mismo dice, no es poca prueba. Por acá va todo, tambien, lo mejor que es posible, despues de la cruel borrasca que se ha disipado y de que ya estará U. orientado; hablo de la conspiracion del 25 en 7re. Esta se ha terminado ya porque solo falta la confirmación del Consejo, que se da
