JOSÉ MODESTO RODRIGUEZ
The Cuban General writes a poetic observation about the end of the country's War for Independence, proclaiming "Glory crowns the success of the Cuban Army!"
Autograph Letter Signed: "J.M. Rodriguez" in iron gall ink. 7½x4¾. Fully Translated in Spanish:"The war with all its horrors! The absence of loved ones! A place where happiness is in the air! That is what I felt when I visited your house for the first time. Today the war has ended. Glory crowns the success of the Cuban Army. In this 'Guayabal' where I have received so many kindnesses I receive the good wishes from the Havana society. My military duties still keep me away from my loved ones. You and your husband, after performing your patriotic duties, receive the petting of your children and the thanks of the Cuban people! May fate, with its unexpected misfortunes, never disturb the happiness of Mrs. Gertrudis Cabaleiro de Bascuas!" Jose Modesto Rodrigues was a Major General in Cuba's War of Independence (1895-1898); Guayabal was one of the small towns in the province of Havana that had been captured by Cuban forces on January 1, 1896. Many of the small towns in the region had sided with Spain; with some even providing Cuban guerrilla forces to resist the revolutionaries. Uniformly browned. Slightly soiled. Three tiny nicks at left edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
