Washington, DC?]: 1870. 4to. 4-leaves, a memorial printed in Spanish and in English, each in three pages. Disbound pamphlet (some separation at spine). Very good. Item #46540

First edition of the memorial for de Luna; Coopwood served as de Luna's attorney in fact. OCLC (for another memorial in the same case): "Describes damages resulting from a raid led by Captains Callahan and Henry on Piedras Negas in 1855 to obtain booty for the support of the U.S. Army in Texas"; de Luna here asks for recompense. As described here, Callahan and Henry destroyed the town, located on the Rio Grande across from Eagle Pass, Texas, and rode away with nearly all of the inhabitants' possessions. OCLC locates two nearly identical memorials, presented by Julian Rordiquez (Texas Tech only) and Octaviano Cervero (SMU only); this one is not recorded.

Price: $450.00
