DAILY NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., Sept, 29, 1847 Page 3 has much of a column taken up with fine report on the closing battles of the Mexican-American War, headed: "The Late Battles In Mexico". Near the beginning is: "Our arms are again victorious, but at a fearful cost of life and blood...". The American army was advancing very close to Mexico City: "...The 20th of August, 1847, will be a day never to be forgotten. Its history is written in blood and the halo of glory that it wreathes upon the arms of our county...The Mexicans agreed to a truce with a view to appoint commissioners to negotiate a peace. An armistice was yesterday agreed upon..."
Also a report headed: "From Chihuahua and Santa Fe".
Four pages, very nice condition.
