Summary: A group of Pasto residents defend their group, a branch of the Artisans' Society. They call themselves true republicans and Catholics. They also defend their choice to take up arms to defend Pasto's sovereignty on Dec 28, 1873 during a period of political unrest. The document closes with a quote from Julio Arboleda: "Pueblo, todo en tu nombre y nada para tí."
Historical Notes: During the 1870's, Colombia was rife with political conflict, both between Radical and Moderate Liberals, and between Liberals and Conservatives. Because the authors mention Julio Arboleda and their ties to the Catholic Church, they likely supported the Conservative Party and disproved of the Radical Liberal administration that was in power (1867-1880).
