Manuel Ximenes Partly-printed Document Signed "Manuel Ximenes" as Governor of Coahuila and Texas. 2 pages, 6 x 8.25", Monclova, April 21, 1833. A decree declaring John Brown a citizen of Coahuila y Tejas.

    Kimball 222. Probably printed on Samuel Bangs' press 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. A separate identical print of this decree is in the Hardin Papers, Texas State Library and Archives Commission, Calendar of the Atascosito District Archives, 1826-1836. Document 65. It has the following description: 4/21/1833. From: Monclova. To: Citizen Alcalde de la Villa de la Libertad. Subject: citizenship of John Brown. Forwarded on 5/16/1833 by Manuel Ximines, Bejar.

    Irregular left margin, light creases, moderate toning at bottom right corner, another small spot clear of text, else very bright and clean and in very good condition. From the collection of Darrel Brown.

    Reference: Not in Streeter, reference 808
