Santa Anna threatens retribution if Childs does not leave Puebla...



Item # 658830

November 01, 1847

DAILY NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., Nov. 1, 1847 

* Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna
* Mexican-Amercian War


Page 3 has a great letter from Santa Anna to Col. Childs, stating his request that Childs evacuate the city of Puebla and if he does so he would extend courtesies to his exit. The responding letter from Childs states he will have none of it--he will defend his position at Puebla. Ultimately Santa Anna would depart.
Four pages, very nice condition.
