Probably the first news from the Cerro Gordo battlefield, addressed to governor Domingo Ibarra. Santa-Anna oddly reports that he has repulsed an attack on Telegraph Hill, an attack that did not happen until the next day and which was successful. He states the enemy suffered multiple casualties while his army suffered thirty dead and 122 wounded.
