Description
Satirical sheet, partially in verse, attacking the "yorkinos" or York Rite Masons in Mexico. The text suggests that the demise of Masonry's political influence leaves the Yorkinos with the dubious last resort of joining Santa Anna to foment revolution. Illustrated with a copper engraving titled "El torrente fleguetón," featuring a tableau of Greek mythology, including Sisyphus, Tityos, the Furies, the Fates, bats, skeletons, a demon, all hovering around a seated figure representing Rhadamanthus
