Description

    Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna Letter Signed "A.L. er Sta. Anna". Written on one of the four integral pages, 5" x 8", July 21, 1866, New York, to John Q. Adams, namesake and descendant of the former president. A brief letter complying with the recipients arrest for an autograph. Santa Anna was president of Mexico on eleven non-consecutive occasions over a period of 22 years. In 1855, a group of liberals led by Benito Juárez overthrew Santa Anna, sending him into exile. As the extent of his corruption became known he was tried in absentia for treason and all his estates confiscated. During his exile he lived in Cuba, the United States, Colombia, and St. Thomas. In 1874 he took advantage of a general amnesty and returned to Mexico. Crippled and almost blind from cataracts, Santa Anna died in Mexico City two years later, penniless and heartbroken. Lightly toned, with mail folds and minor mounting remnants on the blank integral page, else fine.
