Description: Colombian President of the Confederation of Granada (now the Republics of Colombia and Panama) in 1861, who was also a distinguished General, writer, poet, scholar, and lawyer. On November 13, 1862 Arboleda was assassinated at the age of 45. 1 page, 6.75 x 4.75 inches, no place, no date, circa 1855. Written in Spanish and untranslated, thanking a friend for sending him a book and sending well wishes. Below this letter is an inscription (from the 1850s or 60s) in Spanish, stating: "This is the autograph of the grand poet Latin-American Julio Arboleda...certified authentic." Usual folds; very good condition.

Comments: Though we have been unable to identify the authenticator's name, we were able to match Arboleda's handwriting from examples in several archives to our letter, and we are certain that our letter is authentic.
