Dear Mr. Reed,

I hope that when you receive this e-mail that all is well with you. I know that you have had your announcement on the El Salvador forum for some time now. From what I have known, the number of families is not really 14.

In the book "Archbishop Romero -Martyr of Salvador" by Placido Erdozain, it says on page 3: "Here are the names of the famous fourteen families, the rulers (as long as the Yankees keep them there) of the destiny of El Salvador: Llach, De Sola, Hill, Dueñas, Regalado, Wright, Salaverria, Carcia Prieto, Quiñones, Guirola, Borja, Sol, Daglio, and Meza Ayau."

And according to the "Historical Dictionary of El Salvador" by Philip F. Flemion, it says, "CATORCES GRANDES, LOS. This name refers to the fourteen families which are thought to control a sizable portion of the nation's wealth and exercise considerable influence over political affairs. Estimates of the actual number of families which compose this elite group have ranged from five to one hundred."

Hopefully this information is helpful to you.


Jaime C.
