which constitutes volumes XIX and XXI of the first series of the
Documentos Iniditos, etc. This Apnndice "is more than the his-
tory of this college since in it is given a succinct idea of the foun-
dation of all the colleges of the City of Mexico to 1700." This
fact is clearly revealed in the table of contents compiled by Mr.
Castafieda to precede the text of Sr. Osores's Apindice. The items
comprising this table of contents are: Colleges or seminaries of
Mexico; Founders, patrons and benefactors of the College of S.
Ildefonso; Endowed scholarships; Professorships in the College
of S. Ildefonso; Professors, presidents, and academies; Consti-
tutions of the college; Privileges and honors; Literary exercises;
Holidays and religious practices; Plan of studies; Chaplaincies
for the collegians; Library or book collection; Rectors who have
administered the college to Sefior Doctor D. Jos6 Maria Guzman;
Collegians who have been ecclesiastics; Alphabetical index.

intimate revelations of the principal characters of the war of
La Reforma, as, for example, Ignacio Comonfort, Santos De-
gollado, Guillermo Prieto, Jesfis Gonzales Ortega, Miguel Lerdo de
Tejada, Manuel Payno, and many others."
The nearly century-old struggle for liberalism was prematurely
initiated by G6mez Farias in the early 30s of the last century, but

worthy liberal aims were crystallized and drafted into the new
fundamental law of 1857. Opposition to the liberal program by
