EL MEJICANO. El Mejicano, a bilingual imprint that may be called a newspaper, was a successor to the Gaceta De Tejas and was published in Natchitoches, Louisiana, by William Shaler and José Álvarez de Toledo y Dubois in June 1813. The paper was published to attack José Bernardo Gutiérrez de Lara and was distributed in San Antonio de Béxar. The press, which was for a time set up in Nacogdoches, may have been returned to Texas and captured by Mexican forces under Joaquín de Arredondo at the battle of Medina.
