    Mexican Loan Decree Signed by local officials, three pages, 8" x 12". Mexico, June 17, 1836. On two conjoined sheets. From the Secretaria de Hacienda (Secretary of the Interior), J. de la Fuente, announcing that the interim President of Mexico, José Justo Corro, has been authorized by the congress to issue certificates for a new government loan of two million pesos, to be for one year. With Pres. Santa Anna fighting in Texas, Corro became interim president succeeding Miguel Barragán who had died on March 1st. There were money problems and the country was disorganized and demoralized mainly because of the war in Texas. By the time this loan was authorized, Mexico had been defeated at the Battle of San Jacinto and Santa Anna had been taken prisoner. Notes about publication of this decree, signed by Ramon Covarrubias and Manuel M. de Veneiza, local officials, at the bottom of the second page. The third page is a form for the loan certificate to be issued. With dampstaining affecting all pages at top, unaffected portion remains bright.
