Autograph letters by Bolivar are uncommon at auction. This is a very personal letter to Tomás Montilla, signed affectionately "tu-yo Simon". Montilla, called "El Brillante" by Bolivar, was born in Caracas in 1787 and was the younger brother of Mariano Montilla (1782–1851), General of the Army of Venezuela in the Venezuelan War of Independence. Tomás joined the revolutionary forces in 1810 and in 1813 he fought in the Campaña Admirable under the command of Bolívar, winning in Niquitao, Los Horcones and Taguanes. He reached the rank of Brigadier General and died in 1822.
