    [Circular] Federal Districts and Commissaries Established. [Mexico] Oct. 22, 1833. With heading: SECRETARIA DE HACIENDA. SECCION 1.A. 4pp. Single folded folio sheet. This decree clarifies the establishment of federal districts in México, Coahuila y Tejas, Veracruz, Zacatecas, Yucatán, Sonora, Oajaca, Sinaloa, Jalisco, Chihuahua, and Tamaulipas. Signed in print at end by José M. Bocanegra - Minister of Interior then Treasury. Text begins: "El Exmo Sr. Vice- Presidente De Los Estados-Unidos Mexicanos, En Ejercicio Del Supremo Poder Ejecutivo, Se Ha Dirigirme El Decreto Qu Sigue. En Consideracion Á Que Las Circunstancias Del Erario Demandan Imperiosa Mente La Reduccion De Los Gastos Públicos; Áhaber Manifestado La Esperiencia Que Algunas Comisaríasge..." The duties of each "commissary" are explained, as well as the responsibility of federal agents serving at these bases. Published during Santa Anna's disappearance into the countryside, this document shows the effectiveness of the Valentin Gomez Farias administration; Farias acted as president of Mexico during this stretch of Santa Anna's unavailability. Protected in a half-calf folder with red cloth boards and gilt lettering on the spine. Creamy age toning overall; in very fine condition. From the collection of Darrel Brown.

    Eberstadt 162:39: "This document represents one of the four essential steps used in the colonization process, being the empresario's certificate, stating that the immigrant had been admitted as a member of Austin's Colony." Streeter 9: "Among the 1829 and early 1830 products of the San Felipe press are printed forms for some of the steps in the process of making grants of land to immigrants. I do not ordinarily list forms, but as these grants were the foundation of the colonization of Texas, it seems suitable that the four essential printed forms used in the colonization process should be entered or noted."

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
