Summary: Reprint of letters exchanged between President Tomás C. de Mosquera and a group of Bogotá citizens who support his presidency.
Historical Notes: This broadside comes shortly after the end of the Civil War (1859-1863), in which T.C Mosquera led a Liberal rebellion against the Conservative Mariano Ospina regime. Mosquera took the presidency by force in 1861. This mid-century war helped drive the deep and lasting divide between Liberals and Conservatives. Bushnell, David.
