    Juan Antonio Padilla Document Signed. One and one-half pages, 8.25" x 12", Monterrey, January 13, 1821, in Spanish only seven months before the Treaty of Córdoba, which granted Mexican independence from Spain, was signed.

Before Mexican independence, Juan Antonio Padilla (?-1839) served secretary to the commandant general of the eastern Provicias Internas. After independence, he accepted an appointment as the secretary of state of Coahuila and Texas (1825-1828).
