- Emilio Aguinaldo allegedly wrote a letter about the execution of Andres Bonifacio
- The said letters will be part of Leon Gallery's auction
- The letters of Major Lazaro Macapagal and Emilio Jacinto will also be part of the auction
Emilio Aguinaldo, the first and youngest Philippine President, allegedly ordered to kill Andres Bonifacio, the Father of Philippine Revolution. KAMI learned that this information came from the letters allegedly written and signed by Aguinaldo himself.
There are two letters that Aguinaldo reportedly sent to Jose P. Santos which contain the reasons why the first President ordered to kill Bonifacio. Historical and cultural consultant Lisa Guerrero-Nakpil gave more details about the letters.
“Sinulat ito ni Emilio Aguinaldo habang 79-years-old siya. Sa dalawang sulat na ‘yon, in-admit na ni Emilio Aguinaldo na tinuloy niya ‘yung hatol ng Consejo de Guerra,” Nakpil said as reported by ABS-CBN News.
“‘Yung sa isa, sinasabi niyang gusto niya sana ipatawag si Andres Bonifacio at ipapatapon na lang niya, pero dahil sa unfortunate circumstance, hindi dumating on time ‘yung pagpalit nung utos niya,” she added.
“Sa sulat na isa, sinasabi niya na pinuntahan siya ng mga dalawang loyal na general niya at sinabi sa kanyang for the good of the country, kailangan ituloy niya ‘yung hatol.” Nakpil stated.
The letters are believed to have the signature of Aguinaldo and are the official letters sent to Santos.
The Leon Gallery will be including the aforementioned letters in their auction. Other than that, they will also include the letters of Major Lazaro Macapagal, the leader of the soldiers who allegedly killed Bonifacio and his brother Procopio, and the letter of Emilio Jacinto, the “Brains of Katipunan.”
The letters came from a private collector who also had the letters of Bonifacio and Gregoria de Jesus that were already auctioned before.
The Leon Gallery will be opening its doors to the public this coming weekend.
