Perez Fernandez, Diego José





Dated in type July 9, 1847. Broadside: 32 x 21.3 cm.

First edition. Harper 12:335.

Because of the actions of the U.S. Army, who have done such things as release dangerous and notorious criminals from the Puebla jails to fight for the United States, it is ordered that bodies of the National Guard be formed to protect the populace. Excepted are those who have already volunteered to serve in some capacity. The tenor of the language is exceptionally anti-gringo. At this point, Mexico City was expecting Scott to arrive at any time. Scott had indeed emptied the Puebla jails to recruit guerrillas and spies for his army.
