In order to do that you will have to keep an economical table and travel very little...We talk of having peace by the 15th instant in which case I may soon be at home, and go straight to work...". Edwards also makes notes about his observations of Mexico, in part: "...The Indians are very numerous in the interior & threaten to drive all but their own race out of the country as they are now attempting to do at Yucatan...".
