    [Broadside] Decree Establishing a Commissary Department for the Army Now Proceeding To Texas. [Mexico] October 15, 1836. With heading: SECRETARIA DE HACIENDA. SECCION 1.a. One page. Folio. Dated and signed in print at the end: "México á 15 de Octubre de 1836.-- José Justo Corro.-- A D. Ignacio. Alas." Followed by postscript also dated October 15, 1836 and signed in print "Alas" as Secretary of the Treasury, with his holograph rubric below. This law was written to acquire and transport supplies that would support the army that was then preparing to re-invade Texas. Listed here are general types of provisions that are expected to be procured and distributed appropriately to the troops: corn meal, rice, sugar of all types, cocoa, chocolate, coffee, tea, corn, beans, meat, and spices. Encased in a green half-calf folder with marbled boards and gilt lettering on the spine. Old tape stains at extreme outer edges, otherwise in fine condition. This would make a wonderful addition to any Texana or Mexican army collection! From the Darrel Brown Collection.
