Juan Nepomuceno de la Garza y Evia demands a public apology

    [Broadside] Governor of Nuevo Leon Denounces the Annexation of Texas and Calls for an Apology. [Monterrey] [1845] With heading: Juan Nepomuceno De La Garza Y Evia, Goberndaor Constitucional Del Departamento De Nuevo Leon Á Sus Habitantes [Juán Nepomuceno de la Garza y Evia, Constitutional Governor of the Department of Nuevo Leon to its Habitants]. One page. Folio. Signed in print at end: "Juan Nepomuceno de la Garza y Evia. Monterey Setiembre [sic] 20 de 1845." First edition.

    Reads in part: "Fellow Citizens: The United States of America has broken their pact of friendship and commerce with Mexico . . . Have sanctioned the take-over of Texas and Its armaments and they already occupy the Valley of Corpus Christi . . . at this time we demand a public apology. People of New Leon: This nation raises its formidable arm to stop this aggression. Join the nation's noble inspiration, or we shall drag the chains which someday will bind the most ignored race which inhabits the world poor, but noble patriots, your government and I will appreciate your sacrifice." Nine months later De La Garza Y Evia issued another proclamation to stop the North American Invasion. Document is protected in a black half-calf case with red cloth boards and gilt lettering at the spine. Faint age toning at edges, but overall in very fine condition. From the collection of Darrel Brown.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
