A La Defensa, La verdad para Todos, Vicente Barrantes' Teatro Tagalo, Una Profanacion, Crueldad, Ingratitudes,etc. He was the first to advocate Filipinization of orthography.

He wrote an article about THE NEW ORTHOGRAPHY OF THE TAGALOG LANGUAGE in the newspaper. He was criticized by his fellow Filipinos in Madrid for reminding them not to gamble too much for they destroy the nation's reputation. He was even called POPE instead of PEPE.

Manuel Hidalgo was banished to Bohol again. THIS MADE RIZAL FEEL THE URGE TO GO HOME FOR HIS PEOPLE. BUT HIS FRIENDS, Blumentritt, Basa and Ponce warned him of danger. He changed his mind of going home because he heard from Paciano that they lost the Agrarian case. Rizal planned to raise the case in Madrid. He plans to defend it in Spain. MADRID, SPAIN! He arrived in Madrid on August 1890. But bad news piled as he arrived in the country. 1. FAILURE TO GET JUSTICE FOR THE FAMILY - Calamba was in chaos. Spanish statesmen only contributed words of sympathy.
2. THE DEATH OF JOSE MARIA PANGANIBAN, his Propaganda comrade, in Barcelona due to illness on AUG. 19, 1890.
4. INFIDELITY OF LEONOR RIVERA, planning to get married to an English man.
5. RIZAL and DEL PILAR's RIVALRY and ABDICATION OF LEADERSHIP IN LA SOLIDARIDAD, leading to divisions of the Filipino community in Madrid. BIARRITZ, FRANCE! Rizal wanted to take a rest from the problems he was carrying.
He stayed in Biarritz for 1 month. He finished El Filibusterismo here. He retired from the Propaganda movement and he wanted to focus on publishing El Fili and his medical profession.
He was deciding to settle either in the Philippines, Hongkong or Japan because Europe seemed a banishment to him due to the conflict in La Solidaridad. THAT WAS RIZAL's SECOND TRIP ABROAD :) THANK YOU for accompanying JOSE RIZAL :)
