    General Nicolás Bravo Rueda Autograph Letter Signed Regarding the New State of Guerrero. 2pp., one sided with integral address leaf bearing postal markings from Ciudad Bravos, 4to, November 7, 1849. Bravo, a Mexican politician and soldier, distinguished himself in both offices during Mexico's War for Independence. He was also a member of the three-man commission which governed Mexico before Vicente Guerrero was elected first President of Mexico. Bravo commanded the Army of the North during the Texas Revolution, acted as interim President during Santa Anna's term, and was named President twice more between 1843 and 1846. Here, General Bravo writes to Senator (later President) Ignacio Comonfort, thanking Comonfort for notifying him that Guerrero - named for Vicente Ramón Guerrero, leader of Mexican rebels against Spanish rule and former president of Mexico - had been made an official state of Mexico. A very attractive letter written on pale blue paper. In fine condition. From the Taking of Texas Collection.
