Contestacion al Independiente. Santiago Junio 4 de 1821. @[text begins:] Muy Señor mio: cuando leí por la primera vez el núm. 1º del periódico de V. me pareció que aquella maxima estampada en el mismo, "la ley debe tener proporcion á la ilustracion de los pueblos," destruia enteramente todo cuanto V. quiso persuadirnos .
(Santiago de Chile), n.pr., dated 4 June 1821. - 4°, disbound. Caption title. Uncut. Good to very good condition. 19 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION? This substantial pamphlet examines the European political situation, particularly the actions of the Cortes in Spain (pp. 4-6), the opposition of the czar of Russia to the liberalization of Spain (pp. 4-6), events in Portugal (pp. 7-8), and rebellions across Europe. The writer prefaces his analysis of Chile's foreign and internal affairs by denying that Chile can use the same model as the United States: "El ejemplo del gobierno americano seduce en efecto, por su prosperidad, por que se piensa dice el ilustre Bolívar en su discurso inaugural al congreso de Venezuela que las bendiciones de que goza aquel pueblo son debidas exclusivamente á la forma de gobierno y no al cáracter y costumbres de los ciudadanos. Este pernicioso error es el que ha causado las desgracias de todas las repúblicas americanas donde se ha querido establecer aquel gobierno" (pp. 9-10). Chile, he continues, needs reform of its laws, but for its constitution should stick with the status quo. (A new constitution went into effect in 1822, replacing the provisional constitution of 1818.)The work is signed in print "Un Chileno."*** Briseño I, 76; giving the printer as Imprenta Nacional; I, 165, giving the printer as Gobierno.
