newspaper was to discredit Guti6rrez, his rival; that the printer
of the paper was named Moore, possibly Samuel Moore, of Penn-

became also the first press in Nueva Le6n.
The evidence in favor of these conclusions is, I believe, very
strong, resting as it does on the testimony of an exceptionally
competent eyewitness and supported by a wealth of first-hand
material. Final definite proof, however, awaits the discovery of
quotations from Toledo's paper in other newspapers, or better
still the finding of what would be the piece de resistance of Texas
bibliography--a copy of El Mejicano itself.
