Francisco Javier

However, wisely own their military status, they continue to betray in their communications to his superiors, certain disapproval by disinterest and ignorance that both Hispanic bodies expressed with respect to the possessions of America. Opposition to political or economic changes, and the horror against the crime of wanting independence, would be demonstrated through actions and claims of the Commander of the Apostadero, Captain Jose Maria de Salazar, who had no doubts about the infamous plans of the Board of the Capital, even though their members have wanted to disguise them with the hypocritical mask of our August sovereign Lord Fernando VII. Against the nonsense of a revolution, which seemed to them frankly separatist, mariners acted as Ordinances in the Navy, their formation and their status as faithful Bras of the monarchy were sent. Santiago de Liniers, reviled by the Spaniards, accused of Napoleonic pro by the Governor of Montevideo, Francisco Javier de Elio, despite its close ties with some of the Creole leaders, did not hesitate, faithful to its condition of marine general, to lead the counter-revolution of Cordoba to overthrow the Board and return to the Regency of the Rio de la Plata. Another official general full of merits and services, accompanied him brigadier Juan Gutierrez de la Concha. Santiago de Liniers, on the verge of being shot in head of Tiger along with this and other companions in misfortune, call them that they not protested before the vowel of the first Government patriotic Juan Jose Castelli, who had come to hasten the execution, saying that they were happy because all died with the satisfaction of having been faithful to the King and the nation and that his honour fell unharmed to the Sepulchre. In those moments, Captain Salazar insisted from Montevideo that the independence party is great, which I also did other contemporaries on the realistic side, which at least partially refutes the idea that everything was small secretive and the decision of an elite product.
