Buenos Aires: Imprenta de los Niños Expósitos, 1815. Broadside, approximately 12 1/4 x 7 3/4 inches. In Spanish. Light ink inscription, "Dupl.," in upper margin. Early horizontal fold and light creasing. Small hole, not affecting text, and minor separation at fold, affecting but causing no loss to text, both repaired in silk. A very good copy. A fascinating Buenos Aires imprint, republishing a New Orleans newspaper's publication of correspondence from Mexico during that country's war of independence. The letters, sent from Xalapa on Nov. 5, 1814 and Vera Cruz on Jan. 14 and 15, 1815, are the work of a worried Mexican royalist lamenting the insurgents' recent triumphs. The New Orleans journal in which they appeared was presumably the LOUISIANA GAZETTE, published in New Orleans circa 1805-26. The letters are introduced with a commentary noting: "never have the independents or revolutionaries appeared to have such power." A clear message of encouragement to freedom fighters in Argentina, who would formally declare independence the following year, and an interesting piece of evidence for the circulation of New Orleans news in South America at an early date. Furlong and OCLC together locate ten copies. Scarce. FURLONG 3250.
