[HORSES]. ISUNZA, José Rafael. El Lic. Jose Rafael Isunza, gobernador constitucional del estado libre y soberano de Puebla, a sus habitantes. Puebla, 1847. Dated in type May 12, 1847. Broadside: 32 x 20.7 cm. Margins slightly chipped, old stab holes in left margin. Good. Very rare. None on OCLC.

First edition. Not in usual Mexican-American War sources.

Acting on Santa-Anna’s orders, Isunza basically seizes nearly every extra horse in Puebla. A person may keep only one. Holdouts will be fined. Santa-Anna withdrew from Puebla just a few days after this order, no doubt riding the seized horses.
