    [Broadside] Decree Extending President Jose Justo Corro's Powers to Occupied Ports in Texas. [Mexico]. [1836]. With heading: Secretaria de Hacienda. Seccion 1.a. Four-page folder printed on p. [1]. Imperial Octavo. Dated October 15, 1836 and signed at the end, with holograph notations in several hands. Corro served as Minister of Justice and Ecclesiastical Affairs in the cabinet of President Miguel Barragán, who had been named interim president while Santa Anna was fighting rebels in Zacatecas. However, Barragán died of typhus on March 1, 1836 with Santa Anna still absent (this time fighting rebels in Texas). Under these circumstances, the Chamber of Deputies named Corro interim president on February 27, 1836. He formally took office on March 2 of that year. This decree was issued by Corro to extend his presidential powers to cover all ports in the north which were, at that time, occupied by the expeditionary force against Texas. Red half-calf case with gilt lettering at spine. In fine condition. From the collection of Darrel Brown.

    Reference: Streeter Texas 881, his duplicate copy. Eberstadt 162:527. Arrillaga, July-December, 1836, p. 217.; Not in Dublan.
