150 Years Ago: Richard Maury Arrives in Mexico

OCTOBER 24TH, 1865:  Commander Maury's oldest son, Richard, and the only member of the family who voiced any enthusiasm for his Mexican plan, arrived in Mexico City with his wife.

He, crippled like his father, would be understudy in directing immigration and would run for office when his father departed for England to see Mrs. Maury.
