    Broadside Decree Regarding Election Procedures for the State of Coahuila y Tejas by Governor Juan Martin de Veramendi. One page, 8.5" x 12", in Spanish, Leona Vicario [Mexico], February 4, 1833. Signed in print by Juan Martin de Veramendi. On December 18, 1832, Veramendi took up the duties of governor of the state of Coahuila and Texas. This decree provides Santa Anna's argument for the necessity of new elections and gives his approval of the Zavaleta plan to accomplish this goal. The tract then lists ten articles spelling out the details, including procedures concerning the elections of individuals to serve in the State Congress, president and vice president, and two senators to the National Congress. As a result of the elections, Santa Anna was elected President.

    Here Veramendi is incorrectly identified as vice governor; he was actually governor at the time, having taken up his duties as governor on December 18, 1832. Voting was held in the various states and carried out without opposition, resulting in Santa Anna's election as president of Mexico. Housed in a quarter-bound red cloth and leather chemise with titles in gilt on the spine. Lightly toned along the right edge, else fine.

    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.
