DescriptionDecree Abolishing an Excise House in Coahuila and Texas Signed "Juan Martin de Veramendi" in type and, on verso, "Manuel Jimenez" in ink, one page, 5.75" x 8". Monclova, April 19, 1833. In this printed decree, Governor Juan Martin de Veramendi authorizes a Decree of the Congreso Constitucional, approved by Dionicio Elizondo, president of Congress, directing that the receiver's office of excise duties established at San Isidro de Palomas be abolished (Article 1), that Decrees 132 and 141 of April 1830 establishing that office be repealed (Article 2), and that the executive should dictate the necessary measures to carry out this law (Article 3). On verso is a manuscript notation signed by Manuel Jimenez, first regidor and acting alcalde of Bexar. At the bottom of the page is "Dios" (God) with "y Libertad" (and Freedom) penned atop verso followed by Bexar, May 15, 1833, directing that this be sent to Goliad. Not a Samuel Bangs imprint, but probably printed on his press by another printer after the press was sent to Monclova when the capital was moved to Saltillo. The printing is typical of the somewhat irregular quality of Bangs' types and print. Blank margins trimmed, soiled at bottom. Fine condition. From the collection of Darrel Brown.
Reference: Not in Streeter. Cited as Decree 221 in Kimball's Laws and Decrees, 1839, p. 210.
