San Luis Potosí issue of Santa-Anna’s resignation, in which he admits defeat by the U.S. forces and reviews the country’s confused status. He attempts to name a triumvirate to succeed him, including Herrera as president, but that was subsequently declared unconstitutional by the president of the supreme court, Manuel de la Peña y Peña, who himself assumed the office of provisional president on September 26.
