ARRATE, Jose Felix de, Cuban author, born in Havana in 1697; died in 1766. He studied law in Mexico, where he was admitted to the bar, and returned to his native City, where he filled some important offices. In 1761 wrote a history of Havana, the first historical work on a Cuban subject, to which he gave the title of '" Llave del Nuevo Mundo y Antemural de Ins Indias Occidentales," alluding to the important geographical and strategical situation of the capital of Cuba. This work remained unedited until 1830, when it was published by the real sociedad economica of Havana. A new edition was brought out m 1876, forming part of the collection entitled "Los tres primeros historiadores de Cuba." Arrate wrote also poems and a comedy, which are lost.
