A scarce Mexican protest pamphlet, railing against actions taken by United States occupation forces in redistricting Mexican state entities. The author here writes that even though war is barbarous, the victor should respect the rights of the occupied and "pay homage to justice." They discuss the impact of occupation on treaty negotiations, the historical use of authority in Mexico, the impact of American influence in the country on traditional views of the Mexican federation, and other matters. Half a dozen copies found in OCLC, at the Sutro Library, Bancroft, the Lilly Library, UT-Arlington, Wisconsin-Madison, and the Instituto Tecnologico in Monterrey, Mexico.
