Eberstadt 160:339: “The people are urged to engage in guerrilla warfare: ‘Tenacious, implacable, attacking at all hours at all instants—no human power can withstand that.’” Garrett & Goodwin, The Mexican-American War, p. 86: “This rare and virtually unknown pamphlet criticizes the way the central government is handling the war. The writers are especially upset over taxation and the fiscal policy.” Sutro, p. 852.
