`Bolivar and Francisquita, The Missing Correspondence' Sep 16, 2004
<What I would like to do as the author of this book is to present my own version, in English, of the synopsis of the book. It is well documented that Simon Bolivar, the Liberator of seven countries in South America (why seven is well explained in the book) was a tireless correspondent. He was able to dictate simultaneously to four recorders at the same time without ever confusing the issues. It would be unconscionable that, even though we know at least 200, maybe even 400, well-documented letters from the countess Fannie (Fanny or Francisquita) du Villars to him, we know only three, maybe four, from him to her. He had loved and admired her immensely. She remained forever as her best friend and promoter of his cause in Europe. Thus the premise of this book: In a well - documented historical novel, (the documentation will be consigned in the next book `Data Base Of The Novel Bolivar y Francisquita'), the author has dared to put in the mouth and hand of the Liberator Simon Bolivar, the missing correspondence. How this is accomplished and how the missing correspondence had been hidden from humanity, is explained in the introduction to the book, Further explanations are in the chapter 'Notations by Lee O'Fallon on the day of the opening of the secretaire .'
