    [Broadside] Antonio Vallejo: El Exmo. Sr. Presidente interino de la Republica Mexicana with heading "Secretaria de Hacienda. Seccion 1a", one page, 8.5" x 11.75", without the integral blank leaf. Mexico City. January 9, 1836. Congressional decree by Interim President Miguel Barragán and promulgated by Antonio Vallejo authorizing the government to dispose of half of the income of the departments while the war provoked by the Texas colonists continues. In near fine condition and housed in a quarter Morocco case with gilt letters at spine. From the collection of Darrel Brown.

    Reference: Streeter 871: "No copy has been located of the first separate publication of this decree [as above] and the text does not seem to be in Arrillaga or Dublan."
