    Broadside Announcing Santa Anna's Arrival at Vera Cruz and his Loyalty to Mexico. 8.5" x 12.5", San Luis Potosi, February 26, 1837. Alcance a la Opinion, Num. 174. In part: Llegada a la Republica del Exmo. Senor General D. Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna ["His Excellency General D. Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna has returned to the Republic"] ... Imprenta del Gobierno a cargo del Ciudadano Jose Maria Infante.

    Following Santa Anna's defeat and capture by Sam Houston's soldiers at the Battle of San Jacinto, (April 21-22, 1836), he and acting Texas president David G. Burnet signed the Treaties of Velasco which stated that, "in his official character as chief of the Mexican nation, he [Santa Anna] acknowledged the full, entire, and perfect Independence of the Republic of Texas." In exchange, Burnet and the Texas government guaranteed Santa Anna's life and transport to Veracruz. This circular from the Minister of the Interior announces Santa Anna's return from captivity in Texas, followed by a paragraph explaining that the need for immediate publication of this news prevents the printing of the accompanying documents, although it does include one paragraph of Santa Anna's denial that he signed any deed in captivity that was unfaithful to Mexico. Once back in Mexico City, a new government declared that Santa Anna was no longer president and the treaty was thus null and void.

    The documents transmitted with this circular were undoubtedly those in the Supplemento al Diario del Gobierno (Streeter 919). Contemporary half-calf case with gilt lettering at spine.A few small chips at upper edge, else very fine. From the collection of Darrel Brown.

    Reference: Streeter 927.1, locating only two copies
