    Pamphlet, La Verdadera a la Falsa Opinion Publica, sobre el proyecto Pendiente en el Senado, relativo á la amortizacion del cobre, administracion de la renta del tabaco y arbitrios para la guerra de Tejas, por un patriota. 15 pages, octavo, 4.5" x 7.75", (Mexico: Impreso por I. Cumplido, calle de los Rebeldes n. 2, 1841) in titled wraps. Dated at end April 12, 1841, and signed "Un Patriota", this pamphlet was part of a larger series of works concerning the proposal to the Mexican Congress early in the year 1841, by a group known as Comisiones Unidas de Hacienda y Tejas, of a law to help remedy the then deplorable state of Mexican government finances. Though the Federalist revolt under Canales, in which Texans were prominent, had been put down the previous fall and the Texan Santa Fe Expedition was not to start until June, the "war with Texas" was used by the Mexican government as a battle cry in their campaign for increased revenues. One tiny hole at bottom right, wraps evenly toned, else very good. From the Darrel Brown Collection.
