About this Item

1 sheet. Central engraved portrait of Balmaceda surrounded by text, lower third a black bordered engraving of the death scene. Text includes a reprint of the first article on his death on September 20 from 'La Prensa' and Balmaceda's letter, written just prior to his death, to José E. Uriburu. José Manuel Emiliano Balmaceda Fernández (1840-1891) was the eleventh President of Chile, whose increasing difficulties with the Congress led to his ruling by decree which resulted in the Civil War of 1891. Having lost to the Junta and congressional forces, and with the homes of his supporters looted and his officers murdered, in August Balmaceda took refuge in the Argentine legation, and committed suicide the day after his term of office had expired, leaving behind his written political testament.
