Bolivar the Liberator

By Michel Vaucaire; Margaret Reed | Go to book overview

AT Guayaquil, Bolivar met José de San Martín. The general from La Plata had just freed Chile and part of Peru. He had ridden into Lima with his gauchos, horsemen as formidable as the Ilaneros. He came to Guayaquil on purpose to make Bolivar's acquaintance.

The struggle of these two men against the Spanish yoke had greatly attracted them to one another, but for the last two years their attempts to meet had been in vain.

San Martín, worn out by these wars, handed on to Bolivar the task of completing the victory. He had only one wish, to return to France and finish his days there. Bolivar accepted the charge and vowed to the Argentine that he would leave no part of South America in Spanish hands.

Victorious on the battle-field, Bolivar made proclamations to his fellow-citizens:

'Your glorious fatherland is free at last, the victories of Bombona and Pichincha have completed the work which your heroism began. From Orinoco to the Andes of Peru the army of liberty has marched from success to success. Only one town still holds out, but not for long.

'South Colombians! The blood of your brothers
