[New-Buda, Iowa]. Jan. 24, 1851. 22pp. Folio. Loose sheets. Some dust soiling. Overall good. Item #WRCAM28056
An eloquent and impassioned appeal for Hungarian freedom from centuries of Austrian tyranny, here prepared by the leader of a community of Hungarian exiles living in Iowa. In a paragraph on the last page, Kossuth appoints Ughazi his representative to the United States. The manuscript seems to have been aimed at garnering American support for the Hungarian cause soon after the failures of the revolution of 1848 and subsequent short-lived Hungarian republic led by Kossuth. New-Buda was the location of an early Hungarian settlement in Iowa. An important work of a leading Hungarian immigrant. EBERSTADT 163:284.
