Autograph Letter Signed: "Fernando Cortina" in iron gall ink. 8½x6¼. 4 pages. Fully Translated in English: "Cuban Liberation Army. 4th Forces of the Army 2nd Division, 3rd Brigade . Sagua. Minister of War Carlos Roloff. The Civil Governor Gerardo Machado has informed me that you have been named Minister of War, so I want to congratulate you with all my heart. I have been walking in my zone and its aspect of it is very satisfactory, in general the public spirit is with our cause but in order for us to be able to do something it is indispensable that the invasion occurs, because if not, it will happen here what happened the last time in Las Tunas with Vicente Garcia. I know who the guilty ones are but the thing is that the paddocks are completely empty, the exploiters bring their tobacco to towns and pay the same contributions that the ranchers pay, and it is unknown what has been the destiny of that money. Regarding the park you told me Luis Suarez would give me there was an agreement of only 150 liras and even in my last letter I told you that 20 meters of dynamite they only were 2 meters o 24 feet of ½meter. So, I have been without any park, I have gotten some weapons and munitions and even they are not too many, they will help us out. I know you have received from the Counsel of War the files of Mr. Agapito Suri and with enough proofs I can tell that such house never existed but the assassination did happen, and the diligences were made after the crime was perpetrated. The reputation of Mr. Suri was unimpeachable, and all the things he is accused for are false. If by the time you receive this letter you are near the Marques of Santa Lucia, congratulate him and salute him in my name, and please do the same with Mario Rodriguez. Fatherland and Liberty. With so much consideration and respect, all yours. Fernando Cortina. El Loro, October 15, 1895." Fernando Cortina was a General who fought for the independence of Cuba. Signer merits further research. Multiple mailing folds, Moth marked. Edges frayed and worn. Stains throughout. Otherwise, fine condition.
