    Antonio López de Santa Anna Letter Signed "A. L. Sta. Anna." One page with integral address leaf, 8.5" x 10.5", in Spanish, Tacubaya [Mexico City], July 23, 1850[?], to Colonel D. Feliciano de Liceaga, Governor of Guanajuato. The letter reads, in full: "Since you sent me your letter of the 15th, the unpleasant event instigated by your forces had not yet occurred, at that time your opinions were justified; now in light of said circumstances, they are no longer valid and I therefore have nothing further to say regarding the matter. Your forces have been dissolved by supreme decree, which also orders you to give an account of the causes that contributed to this disgraceful event. I hope that there will be nothing reprehensible with regard to your personal conduct and handling of the matter, since I am familiar with your record and I hope there will be nothing to tarnish my good opinion of you. In the certainty that this will be the case, I remain your dear friend and at your service..." It is unknown as to what "event" Santa Anna is here referring, but it is obvious that he is not pleased with Liceaga.

    Usual folds which have weakened causing small holes at the intersections, but with no loss of text. Large tear along the edge of the address leaf. Stamp bearing the Mexican coat of arms above the slogan "President, United Mexican States."

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
