The top of the front page has: "Proclamation OF War by the Mexican Usurper" which includes: "...The supreme President, Gen. Paredes, issued a proclamation on the 23rd April. This manifesto...showing the progress of the American forces & the means adopted to repel them...that the American troops, having advanced to the Rio Grande..." with more on this (see). Curious that it ends with: "...Apprehensions are entertained that the Mormons, who were said to be crossing the mountains, would overrun the whole of Mexico and subdue it. Their reputation has preceded them."
More on the Mexican War inside including: "War Movements--Spirit of Tennessee" "To Arms! To Arms!" "Letter From General Gaines" and more.
