Rizal devoted much of his time in annotating the work of Dr. Morga
It was considered as Rizal’s greatest achievement in London

This laborious task made was prompted by his desire to rectify some of the points written by Dr. Morga, so that the Filipinos would have a clear understanding of the history of their country.
