Summary: Rafael Bonilla writes to contest the veracity of a posted entitled "Una Contestación" written by publication by Juan Nepomuceno Montero, the Governor of Barbacoas. According to Bonilla, Montero falsely accused him of political misconduct as a representative of Barbacoas. Bonilla states that "Una Contestación" only proves that Montero is an uncivilized criminal.
