“Momementos tan angustiados y tristes”

<p>P. [1]</p>


[CATHOLIC CHURCH]. DIOCESE OF GUADALAJARA. Gobierno Eclesiastico de la Diocesis de Guadalajara. [Guadalajara, 1846]. [2] [2, blank] pp. 12mo (22 x 16.3 cm), folded sheet. Dated in type Guadalajara, September 26, 1846. Except for light stain at upper right margin, very fine. Signed with parafs of three officials. Rare. No copies on OCLC.

Second edition (1st edition was probably a broadside of the same date; see Eberstadt 259).

An extraordinary circular letter authorized by the Archbishop to allow the solicitation of funds from the city clergy for war support in such amounts as each one feels able to contribute. The country is described as being in dire straits and desperately in need of support from its patriotic clergy. This measure was no doubt better received by the Church than laws to raise taxes forcefully on its properties.
