Summary: This pamphlet is a collection of speeches by the clergy, local politicians and entrepreneurs welcoming the arrival of the Daughters of Charity religious order to Sogamoso. The local government signed a contract with the order so that the sisters could manage a local hospital and open a school.
Historical Notes: After Independence, Liberal and Conservative governments followed the principle of patronato, which meant that the church should be subordinate to the laws of the nation state, but also that the state would have responsibilities, often economic, to the church. However, depending on the degree of radicalism of the particular party leader, conservative governments generally tended to favor a privileged position for the Catholic Church compared to the liberals.
