    [Confederate Texas]. Juan Santos Coy Autograph Letters (2) Signed. Both are biofoliums (four and one-half total pages of text) measuring 8" x 10.5" and are written to Evaristo Madero, another member of the famous Coy family of Coahuila, regarding supplies being shipped from Mexico to the Confederacy. Minor tears to one (resulting from the original opening of the letter). Minor staining.

    More Information:

    In the first, dated December 17, 1862, from Monclova, Coy responds to Madero, who had been denied safe conduct for transporting 1,200 bags of flour to Texas. Some paper (and text) loss as a result of tears. Very clean paper. In the second, dated March 18, 1863, also from Monclova, Coy writes of a shipment of flour bound for Texas through Laredo. Some staining. Evaristo Madero was the father of Francisco Madero, a revolutionary who sided with Pancho Villia and became president (he was assassinated in office).
