The struggle for independence was supported by many secret groups. One of the first was the Aguila Society, later it was the renowned Society of the Guadalupes which had a large following in the society of the capital. Many women made sales and clothing for soldiers, and merchants contributed pistols and supplies. One transcendental action of this society was to provide what is necessary to publish the news of liberation. Jose Maria Coss, lacking a printing machine, had made some types of rustic wood and printed them "The American Illustrator" that made the voice of emancipation heard everywhere. The Society of Guadalupes learned of the problems facing Coss but sending a printing machine was impossible because part of having a large volume, had to go through the Realists first to get to the Liberators.
However, Ms. De Raz Guzman and Ms. Del Rio accepted the challenge; They went in a separate carriage, one with the typing box and the other with the box to print. The distinguished ladies managed to cross the Realist area and no one learned that under the enormous and colorful clothing and luxurious tapestry, the instrument that would win more followers to the Creole cause was traveling.
