Unsympathetic response to the autobiographical testimony, published in New Orleans, of the public life of Mexican General and later President Don Manuel Gómez Pedraza, (1789-1851). Gomez Pedraza was Minister of War in 1825 and was opposed to the first president General Vicente Guerrero and had to flee to France in 1829. He returned to Mexico in 1830 only to leave again for New Orleans, where he published his Manifesto. He returned to Mexico after the fall of Gral. Anastasio Bustamante in 1832 to serve out the remaining presidential term. This scarce imprint is held by six libraries-UCB, LC, NYPL, UPenn, Brown. The manifesto is held by eight institutions including Tulane University but only UCB and NYPL have both.
