El Presidente Interino de la Republica y General en Gefe del Ejercito, a los Mexicanos


San Luis Potosí




Broadside: 31 x 22 cm.

Later edition. Harper 353. 

A reissue of the first edition, here published at San Luis Potosí with an added patriotic note by Ramón Adame. Issued on the eve of the resumption of hostilities at Mexico City after the truce was about to break down. Santa-Anna is hostile and rejects all American overtures as unjust to the nation and promises to fight “para libertaros du un yugo ponderoso.” “One of the most heatedly written of the intemperate Mexican broadsides, in Santa Anna’s customary inflated style” (Eberstadt 658). Adame’s note is a close stylistic second: “lavando con la sangre americana el baldon que cubria la frente de nuestra Patria.” The Battle of Molino del Rey occurred the day after Santa-Anna’s pronouncement.
