    (Texas Revolution) Printed Circular Signed "J. Antonia Padilla" in print. 1 page, 8 x 12", Mexico, July 19, 1834 , received from the governor of Querétaro and reissued by Juan Antonio Padilla, Secretary of the state of Coahuila y Tejas, condemning attempts to undermine the authority of the government and addressing in particular attempts that were published in Mosquito Mexicano to manipulate elections. Reads in part: "El general presidente ha reisto impresa en el numero 37 del periodico titulado Mosquito Mexicano, una representacion que parece dirigida a V. E. por los habitants de esa capital, con el objeto de embarezar las elecciones y suspender los efectos de la circular que para la renovacion del congreso general tuve el honor de dirigir, emitiendo las opiniones..."

    In April 1834 Padilla had returned to Monclova, then the state capital, where he soon managed to have his citizenship restored. At the end of May he resumed the post of Secretary of State. [Bancroft, Northern Mexican States & Texas II, p. 145:] "The period designated by the constitution for the elections arrived, and they were held under the disputed authority of the two rival and illegitimate governments, aggravating party animosity, and involving the state in anarchy." Very light creases, else very bright and in extremely fine condition. A superb example; without question a desirable rarity. From the collection of Darrel Brown.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
