    Gaspar López Manuscript Document Signed. 4pp., 8vo, Monterrey, November 13, 1821. Gaspar López served as the commandant general of the Eastern Internal Provinces a few months after Agustín de Iturbide fought Spanish rule and proclaimed the new Mexican empire. Here, López details the troubles of the internal provinces in recent years, including political turmoil, lack of rain, problems with the Indians, and so on. Lopez discusses funds allocated for politicians (possibly for office furnishings), which illuminates the dire financial straits of the regional government. Written shortly after Lopez constructed the first Lipan Apache treaty with Mexico. Document shows light age toning and moderate water stains. Approximately 1" x 4" section of paper missing from lower portion of second leaf (does not affect text or signatures). From the Taking of Texas Collection.
