Signed, Viceroy and Political Chief Superior Alfonso Luís de Carvajal y de Nuevo León And furthermore, the Viceroy would like to clarify the position of the Imperial government as it concerns the legitimacy of the USSA. We recognize the sovereignty of the USSA, and we shall regard any attempt by the other sovereign nations to abrogate this sovereignty as an act of wanton aggression. Clearly the people of that nation have decided to take their fates into their own hands. We hope that other peoples who have suffered at the hands of the Slavers and their New Pharaohs will take a note. In the meantime, New Spain swears its commitment to guaranteeing the independence of the USSA.
