Dated in type, April 26, 1847. Written immediately following the Battle of Cerro Gordo, this address to the populace urges an end to internal bickering and argues the need to concentrate on defeating the U.S. forces, who intend to subjugate not only Mexico but all of the Americas. The legislature urges guerrilla warfare in the strongest possible terms.
