the existing dictator, Santa Anna. Hence he was absent the whole
of the spring until June, 1822. We in the meantime heard any
and all sorts of reports about his absence. Political feeling at the
capital, Mexico, ran very high; and when Colonel Austin presented
his documents, which were made out and signed by the officers of
the late emperor Iturbide, he was incarcerated. But through in-
fluential parties and the catholic priests-principally the latter, as
they were then the power, and also that Austin was and had been
raised a catholic6-he was not only released, but his claim con-
firmed. I have every reason to believe that he did not return from
the city of Mexico until after July 1st; and this is mere conjecture,
for I have never learned when he did return. Up to this time im-
migration had most evidently increased, and still they came.
