First edition. Garrett & Goodwin, pp. 462-463.

A firm deunciation of the Polkos Revolt, making reference to an accompanying Santa-Anna document (not present): “V.E. calificará la necesidad que hay en estas circunstancias, de conservar á toda costa la union entre los mexicanos.” Promises that the rebels will be defeated “si no volvieren al sendero de las leyes.”

The authors denounce José María Lafragua, Octaviano Muñoz Ledo, Mariano Otero, and José Ramón Pacheco as traitors to the country for attempting to undermine the present system of government.
