In this arguably disingenuous letter addressed to the citizenry of Colombia, Tomás Cipriano de Mosquera (1798-1878) disclaims any interest in serving as president for an additional term, and praises the qualities of another prominent figure. Despite this, Mosquera is re-elected to the presidency of Colombia and served in that position for a total of four terms.
