HODELIN TABLADA, Ricardo. Comments on two letters written by rebel general doctors. MEDISAN [online]. 2016, vol.20, n.11, pp. 2439-2447. ISSN 1029-3019.

On November, 1956 the rebel general doctors Eugenio Molinet Amorós and Daniel Gispert García, wrote two letters directed to the historical investigator Luis Felipe Le Roy Gálvez. The letters that this month are 60 years, were originally published in an offprint of the National Library Journal and reproduced in the Notebooks of History of the Public Health. In this work both versions are compared and it is demonstrated that errors existed in their transcriptions, although they don't modify the essential content of the texts; also, the causes that motivated the doctors to correspond in writing the historian Le Roy are evidenced, and it is exposed that none had signed the accusation against Máximo Zertucha Ojeda, Antonio Maceo's last doctor that was published in the newspaper "La Lucha", on January 27, 1899. Finally, convincing elements that demonstrate that doctor Zertucha should not be prosecuted as guilty for the Titan de Bronce´s death are provided

Keywords : Antonio Maceo y Grajales; Daniel Gispert; Eugenio Molinet; Máximo Zertucha; edical staff; general doctors; letters as affairs.
