Quijano, Manuel de Jesus; Joaquin Valencia; and others.  Broadside. Begins La legislatura provincial constituyente de Popayan a sus habitantes, salud. [Popayan]: No publisher/printer, [1853]. Folio (31.5 cm; 12.5") . [1] p.
$350.00

The provincial legislature hope that the new national constitution will end "tantos años de contiendas sangrientas, que solo han producido la miseria i el descontento" and will end the divisive partisan politics. It is hoped that "Que de oriente a occidente i de norte a sur no se oiga mas que una voz; y que los ecos respondan a los ecos, en nuestros profundos valles i sobre las cumbres de nuestros volcanes, con tanta armonia como la belleza de nuestro horizonte, i con tan imponente voz como el sonoro i retumbante trueno que nos recuerda al Dios que aquí no colocó: Paz! Union! Fraternidad!"
