A circular letter to the state governors explaining that despite ill health, Herrera has agreed to become president. A long, thoughtful, insightful analysis of Mexican political and social ills that led to the loss of the war and that need Congress’ attention: “Encargado de los negocios públicos, por la ley fundamental de la Republica y el voto de sus representantes, el gobierno no desearia encontrarse con otros títulos. Muy lejos de ella, la idea que nuestras actuales instituciones fueron insuficientes para salvar la nacionalidad de México, el pensamineto de buscar en poder absoluto el remedio de nuestros males, es á juicio de la administracion el error mas funesto de cuantos hoy pudieran propagarse.”

The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo had been ratified only a few days earlier on May 30.
