Ramon Emeterio Betances y Alacan. Puerto Rican nationalist – he was the primary instigator of the Grito de Lares revolution and is considered to be the father of the Puerto Rican independence movement. Autograph letter signed, two pages (both sides), personal stationery, 5,5 x 8,25 inch, Paris, 9.10.1896, in Spanish, to Tomas Strada Palma (future first President of Cuba) – Betances refers to a diplomatic agreement which was negotiated by Spanish envoys regarding the independence of Cuba, written and signed in dark ink “Betances” – a second signature with his initials beneath a post-scriptum, with a central horizontal letter fold, a few mild stains, scattered small tears to a vertical edge, and a few small areas of paper loss to the upper edge – in fine to good condition. It is a matter of self-esteem for Spain, they would like to keep their flag alongside the Cuban one… All the Spanish forces would leave Cuba, and Cuba would have to continue paying a tribute as a proof of the Spanish sovereignty… I think that in one, two or three years, Spain will settle a rectification of the treaty, retrieving the flag and replacing the tribute by a compensation. Ultimately it is just a matter of words… Our Identification Number: 6024103.
