A la comision de los conspirados de San Salvador.
Los rehenes que mis enemigos tienen
Son objetos muy caros a mi corazon
Soy el jefe de la nacion y mi deber es atacar,
Pasaré sobre los cadaveres de mi familia.
Escarmentare a los rebeldes.
Y no sobreviveré un solo instante mas
A tan escandaloso atentado.

Lego mis restos al pueblo salvadoreño, en prueba de mi predileccion y de mi reconocimiento por su valor y sacrificio en defensa de la libertad y de la union nacional. Declaro que mi amor a centro america muere conmigo. Excito a la juventud que es llamada a dar vida a este pais que dejo con sentimiento por quedar anarquizado, y deseo que imiten mi ejemplo de morir con firmeza antes que dejarlo abandonado al desorden en que desgraciadamente hoy se encuentra. Primero es la patria que la familia.

To the commission of the conspirators of San Salvador: The hostages that my enemies hold are objects very dear to my heart, but I am the Chief of the Nation and my duty is to attack. I will pass over the bodies of my family and will teach the rebels the error of their ways and I won't live one instant more this most scandalous incident.

I leave my remains to the Salvadoran people, as proof of my first thoughts and in recognition of your bravery and sacrifice in defense of liberty and national union. My love of Central America dies with me. I call to the youth of today that are ready to give life to this country that I fear I leave in a state of anarchy, and I desire that you follow my example of dying with firmness before abandoning her to the disorder that she unfortunately finds herself in now. The country should come before the family.
