A bitterly anti-American diatribe written after Trist and Pacheco negotiated the Armistice of Tacubaya. Denounces any treaty with the U.S.: “¡Mueran los cobardes infames que firmen una paz afrentosa para la República!” Although never menaced by Taylor, San Luis Potosí had its share in the war. It was from there that Santa-Anna launched his ill-fated attack on Buena Vista and there to which he retreated after the battle. Feelings obviously still ran deep.
