Rizal writing to blumentritt from HongKong on february 23, 1892, revealed his intention to be a leader of freedom if not in the phillipines, then in other lands in borneo.

The Letter Again

I shall not be a planter(plantador) but the leader(caudillo) of the planter who are thinking of emigrating there with me. I feel flattered by, the idea that I can still serve my country with my pen. You know very well that always, at all times, I am ready to serve my fatherland not only with my pen, but also with my life whenever my fatherland would demand this sacrifice. But as I see that I am getting old, my ideals and dreams are fading; if it is possible for me to give freedom to my country, at least I should like to give it to these noble compatriots in other lands.

Annotated Edition Of Morga Published

Publication of his annotated edition of morgas sucesos in 1890 which he wrote in the british museum. It was printed by garnier freres. The prologue was written by professor blumentritt, upon rizals request.

Rizals Errors According To Blumentritt

1. Rizal commits the errors of many historians in appraising the events of the past in the light of present standards 2. Rizals attacks on the church were unfair and unjustified because the abuses of the friars should not be constructed to mean that catholicism is bad.
