MEXICANS FIGHT INDIANS IN 1848 A.L.S. "Antonio Perez", 2pp., 4to, San Fernando, Mexico, Feb. 8, 1848, in Spanish, a message from Perez to Jesus de la Garza regarding Indian skirmishes. In part: "...I as well as the officers of the company I had the pleasure to lead, are filled with the greatest satisfaction to see that the operations of the Division under your worthy command were received with jubilation by the authorities...". Even while the Mexican government fought Americans in 1848, they still had to contend with raids by roving bands of Lipan Apache Indians, and formulated the Division against Barbarous Indians [Legion contra los Barbaros] to battle them, in which Perez once led the Second Company. Minor folds with slight foxing along the folds and age toning, else fine. Lot also includes a similar letter, A.L.S. "Perfecto Flores", 1p., folio, San Ildefonso, Jan. 25, 1848, a letter from Flores to de la Garza commending him for subduing the "...barbarous Indians of the North...", a mission in which Flores was second-in-command. Flores later earned infamy and the loss of land in Mexico for murdering his own brother with a machete. Minor folds, else fine.
