    Juan Mateo García Autograph Letter Signed Regarding the Occupation of Nuevo León. Four pages including integral blank, 8vo, Cadereita Jiménez, Nuevo León, May 8, 1847. Attorney and district judge Juan M. García writes to his friend José María Parás of Montemorelos (Parás was the first constitutionally elected governor of the state of Nuevo León). García writes about the current state of occupation of Cadereita Jiménez and Montemorelos, saying that it "is, in truth, very disagreeable. . .To what state our political upheavals, which for so many years have devoured our country, have led us!" He goes on to complain about the high taxes that have been levied. Letter is very boldly penned with heavy ink bled through. In fine condition. From the Taking of Texas Collection.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
