A rare pamphlet that prints a plea for clemency by Pedro Neira Acevedo, a Colombian politician who was imprisoned for his role in the Golpe de Mela in 1854. In addition to his request for freedom, the pamphlet comprises a rumination on the current form of the government in Colombia and pleas for a return to non-military, non-dictatorial government. According to a footnote on the final page, Neira was freed and then reimprisoned between the writing and publication of this text. OCLC locates only one copy, at the National Library of Chile.
