A Life Together

Despite his increasingly fragile health (respiratory problems for which he sought relief in long stays at the Hacienda de Atlacomulco in the lower, warmer climate of the Cuernavaca area), the years after the war were frenetic ones for Alamán. He assumed the leadership of the Mexico City ayuntamiento (city council) for a time, founded the Conservative Party in 1848, established a second conservative daily in 1849, served a single term in Congress, and was nominated for president in 1851 (this did not prosper for lack of widespread support). The chapter devotes considerable discussion to the state of his health and to his wealth, with an analysis of his testament of about 1850.
