NOTES

Note to readers: Quotations throughout the text retain original spellings as found, but reprinted without the intrusive [sic], which can be distracting.


Chapter 1

1 Dr. Antonio Lafon, “Report on the Yellow Fever in the City of Matamoras from September 1853 to January 1854,” in Report of the Sanitary Commission of New Orleans on the Epidemic Yellow Fever of 1853, by the New Orleans Sanitary Commission, authorized by the New Orleans City Council (New Orleans: Picayune Office, 1854), 136.

2 I am using the term norteños specifically to mean the Spanish Mexican settlers in the Villas del Norte on the lower Rio Grande, as per Omar S. Valerio-Jiménez, “Neglected Citizens and Willing Traders:The Villas del Norte (Tamaulipas) in Mexico’s Northern Borderlands, 1749–1846,” Mexican Studies/Estudios Mexicanos 18 (Summer 2002): 251–96, and Oscar J. Martínez, “The Mexican Northern Frontier, 1800–1821,” The Handbook of Hispanic Cultures: History, ed. Alfredo Jiménez (Houston:Arte Público Press, 1994), 261–62.

3 The misspelling is the fault of the translator or the New Orleans Sanitary Commission, not Doctor Lafon, who would have known better. “Matamoras” was the most common misspelling for more than a century in American and even British, German, and French publications.

4 John Henry Brown, History of Texas, from 1685 to 1892 (2 vols.; St. Louis: L. E. Daniell, 1892), I, 542.

5 Craig H. Roell, “Matamoros Expedition of 1835–36,” in Ron Tyler, Douglas E. Barnett, Roy R. Barkley, Penelope C. Anderson, and Mark F.

A History of La Bahía (Austin: Texas State Historical Association, 1994).
