I embrace you with all my heart, courage, mother, we shall see each other again someday, kiss my brothers and sisters for me and tell them your son knew how to die. Now I am going to lie down, it is already late, to be ready for the execution to-morrow. I forgive everybody, friends and enemies, I pardon, because they do not pardon me
