"The Gazeta de Lima first appeared in January of 1744 and ran for 18 issues and three supplements before ceasing, before reappearing in 1748 and continuing until 1767. Early periodicals such as this frequently reprinted news items from published elsewhere, both within and beyond the Spanish Empire. These works imbued the colonials with a sense of inclusion within the Spanish milieu, but at the same time helped forge a local and distinctly American identity."
