MARTÍ (1853-1895) wanted absolute independence for Cuba. However, Martí respected Figueroa because the latter had introduced a bill in the Spanish Parliament to abolish slavery in Cuba. In this letter, Martí writes to the Treasurer of Manhattanville College of the Sacred Heart, a convent school in New York that Figueroa's daughters attended. Figueroa had obviously asked Martí, who was in New York, to look after his daughters. Just months after this letter, Figueroa died of consumption. The "public meeting, tomorrow" referenced by Martí, was the historic one on February 14, 1892, when he announced the formation of the party under which in 1895, Martí would initiate revolution in Cuba, leading to the Spanish-American War and Cuba's independence in 1902.
