A rare and important firsthand account of the Mexican retreat from San Antonio two and a half months after their victory at the Alamo.

    Reference: Streeter 849. "The pamphlet is most interesting in the picture it gives of the lack of food and sufficient clothing for the troops and the sufferings and deaths of the wounded due to lack of medicines" - Streeter. We are able to locate a total of only ten copies of this rare and crucial account. This is Thomas W. Streeter's copy, with his pencil notes in the margins of four pages.
