Carta al Señor Doctor Manuel Suarez Fortoul [caption title]

Bogota, Colombia: 1863. Large broadside, approximately 17 x 11 inches. Previously folded. Small chip at right edge, not affecting text. Very good. Item #2939

A large and unrecorded broadside, dated June 12, 1863, printed in two columns and addressed to Manuel Suarez Fortoul, the chief magistrate of Bogota regarding the recently passed law on the property of religious orders. The law, which allowed for taxes on such property, caused much consternation in Colombia, as did similar laws elsewhere in Latin America during the mid-19th century. Here, the author Manuel I. Narvaez offers a detailed, extensive, and outraged sixteen-point rebuttal of the magistrate's arguments for the constitutionality of the law. Not in OCLC.
