"A series of letters to David Holmes Conrad written while the author was serving as a surgeon with the United States Marine Corps. Many descriptions and observations of McSherry's experiences. He was friendly toward Mexicans as individuals, but critical of their society. Though this work contains the reminiscences of a surgeon, there is very little on medicine and diseases. The appendices contain accounts of the sieges of Vera Cruz and Cerro Gordo, written by Conrad. The book contains a list of officers of the United States Army and volunteers who were engaged in the battles of the Valley of Mexico" [Tutorow].
