The Letters of Rizal

Rizal, Europe, October 1891 || The recipient is unknown

Fragment of a letter in Tagalog signed “Laong Laan,” a Rizal pseudonym – written in metaphorical language: “It is true that the times are bad, the ground is not fertile, there are many locusts, frequent typhoons, and the wind blows away the seeds; but with devoted care there will always be found there some fish, as D. M. says” – Expresses loss of confidence in the campaign for reforms in Europe – The fight should be in the Philippines.

These and other letters to and from Rizal can be found here.
