Example text

In 1803 he moved to the house which became his permanent residence, 27 Grafton Street. In 1803, in spite of promises of help from the British cabinet, he was not able to make the expedition he wanted to undertake to Trinidad, the base of his operations in America. In the first months of 1805, he prepared to leave. He wrote his will, naming as executors his friends John Turnbull and Nicolás Vansittart. He arranged that his Colombeia files were to be sent to Caracas (when it became independent), bequeathed his Greek and Latin classics to the University of Caracas, and the rest of his property to his brothers and nephews, so that they could be used for the education of his son, Leandro, and to Sarah Andrews.

Also in 1798 Miranda met William Thompson, a journalist from the Annual Register, who planned to write his biography. Although the project was never carried out, Miranda collaborated with Thompson very closely as military ­assessor Francisco de Miranda, intercultural forerunner for the publication of Military Memories relating to Campaigns, Battles and Stratagems of War Ancient and Modern in 1804. After the first Venezuelan mission arrived in 1810, Miranda’s propaganda mission started in London with his American counterparts.

Andrés Bello can be seen once more, together with Juan García de Río, directing a propaganda newspaper, Repertorio Americano. This time, he avoided political debate and had scientific and literary purposes. It was a cult newspaper aiming at increasing the level of education of the American peoples, and therefore was of a clear educational nature. The collaboration between the editors resulted in giving a more Hispanic American character to the newspaper. Four issues came out quarterly, from October 1826 to August 1827.
