The author was the Scottish wife of the Spanish Minister to the U.S. who was sent to Mexico on a special mission after independence. This is the earliest and most balanced first-hand account of Mexico to be written by a woman. According to Robinson, her book was so detailed that it was used by the American Army as a guide during the campaign against Mexico in 1847. Robinson, Wayward Women, p. 233.
