    During William Henry Harrison’s brief term as Minister Plenipotentiary to Gran Columbia, he was ardently opposed to their leader, Simon Bolivar. Harrison claimed the country to be on the verge of anarchy and urged Bolivar to “adhere to the tenets of republicanism.” He was removed from his position in March of 1829 by President Andrew Jackson, who wished to appoint his own minister. Harrison published this pamphlet to defend his actions while serving abroad.
