Discord betwee the Mexican Federal Government and the state of Coahuila and Texas[Agustin Viesca] Broadside Transmitting a Communication Issued by the Minister of Internal and External Relations Gutierrez Estrada Demanding that the Militia Forces Gathered in Monclova be Dissolved. With "Gobierno Supremo del Estado libre de Coahuila y Texas" imprint at top left, one page, 9" x 12.5", Monclova, May 20, 1835. With a holograph endorsement dated June 16, 1835, signed [José] Angel Navarro, (Political Chief) of the Department of Bejar, (present day San Antonio de Bexar), to the "Ill[ustrísimo] Ayunt[amien]to" (Illustrious City Hall) of the town of Goliad. Navarro, also Mayor of San Antonio in 1832, was an ardent supporter of the separation of Texas and a signer of the Bexar Remonstrance.
First issue of a rare and important broadside related to demands from the Mexican Federal Government, to Governor Viesca of Coahuila-Texas and the local Chamber of Deputies, for not abiding to the federal law issued March 31, 1835 decreeing that measures taken to assure "public tranquility" be consolidated at a national level by the "milicia cívica" (National Guard). In response, the Coahuila-Texan legislature, with the endorsement of Governor Viesca (on April 7, 1835), gave the governor of Coahuila-Texas the power to take any measure it deemed necessary to control the so called "public tranquility" at a local level in defiance of the March 31st decree.
The central government's response, as relayed by Estrada in this broadside, was that "Supreme Government has no other choice but to call attention to that State, (Coahuila-Texas), and manifest that it cannot authorize any change in the federally approved law of March 31st." This decree insisted that the Mexican militia forces that had gathered in city capital of Monclova to defend Texas be dissolved. Printed just months before the initiation of the insurrection of the Texan Anglo-Americans (October 1835) and 10 months before the formal independence of Texas (November 7, 1836). Small tear and paper loss repaired with archival tape, on left margin of document not affecting the text, a horizontal fold in the middle. Overall, very good condition.
