MEXICO. PRESIDENT (Herrera). Discurso pronunciado ante el Congreso General, por el Exmo. Sr. General D. Jose J. De Herrera, al prestar el juramento para entrar en el ejercicio de la presidencia constitucional de la Republica, y contestacion del Exmo. Sr. Presidente de la Camara de Diputados D. Demetrio Montes de Oca. Mexico City: Impreso en la calle de Medina número 6, 1845. [1-3] 4-24 pp. 8vo (21.7 x 13.2 cm), original printed wrappers. Wrappers slightly wrinkled, otherwise fine.

First edition.

An address that paints a generally good picture of the country, although there is mention of the part of the country “que se nos ha usurpado” and of the army’s importance in correcting that situation (pp. 8-9). Herrera (1792-1854) preferred negotiations to war, which he realized that Mexico could probably never win. Those policies got him overthrown the next year by the militant Mariano Paredes y Arrillaga. He assumed the office again in 1847.
