About this Item

Folio (29 x 16 cm.), disbound. Caption title. Light browning, small brownstain, trimmed very close to text. Good to very good condition. Remains of early manuscript notation in ink (trimmed). Broadside. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. In early June 1837, with public opinion running high against President José Joaquin Prieto and the War of the Peru-Bolivian Confederation, Chilean troops under Colonel José Antonio Vidaurre mutinied at Quillota. They imprisoned Diego Portales, who was there to organize a military expedition against Peru (referred to here as "ministro encargado de preparar y acelerar la espedicion al Perú"). Portales, who was in large part responsible for the conservative Constitution of 1833, held few offices in the 1830s but wielded more power than anyone in the Chilean government. Prieto reminds his fellow citizens that since they entrusted the government to him seven years ago, "esta es la primera nube que oscurece el horizonte pacífico que os ha cercado."Colonel Vidaurre set off to Valparaiso, where he was defeated by Admiral Blanco Encalada. When the news of the defeat reached Quillota on June 6, the mutinous troops executed Portales. Portales thereby became a martyr, and public feeling abruptly veered in favor of the war.*** Briseño III, 321 (no. 2025). Not located in CCPBE. Not located in Rebiun. Not located in Copac.
