    More Information:

    The "war with Texas" was used by the Mexican government as a battle cry in their campaign for increased revenues. The methods proposed for such increases caused bitter debates. This pamphlet gives arguments, pro and con, only mentioning Texas in relation to expenses, such as a lack of funds for "the war of Texas and other preferred and recommendable attentions" and "to take care of . . . the army that marches against Texas and to be without resources to continue the aid." This is one of about a dozen pamphlets printed at Mexico City from March to May 1841, relating to expenses, which have "guerra de Tejas" or "Tejas" in their titles.
