Canelones: Impreso en la Imprenta de Canelones, 3 de Noviembre de 1823. Printed broadside. Item #113031

Response to a former official communication and adress to the Congress of the Cisplatine Province, the Cabildo of the "Villa de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe" [now Canelones] and the State General síndico (Tomás García de Zúñiga) report that they have nothing against the conduct of the Baron de la Laguna who ruled the newly conquered Cisplatina Province. "... this Cabildo, for the part that corresponds to it, because this is the general vote, and the only means of preventing reactions, canceling the efforts of the anarchists and permanently strengthening public order and our confederacy on just bases and reciprocal interest. This is what the Cabildo have to say in response to the honorable communication of V. E. from last October 30". Cisplatine Province was the name of the region of the present Republica Oriental de Uruguay between 1817 and 1828, when under the control of the United Kingdom of Portugal, Brazil and Algarve, and later, under the Empire of Brazil. From the Portuguese-Brazilian perspective, the territory was on their side of the Rio de la Plata, therefore the Cisplatine name.
