    Broadside Report of Santa Anna's Decision to Retain Monclova as Capital of Coahuila y Tejas. Two pages, 8.25" x 12", in Spanish, Monclova, December 16, 1834. Being the proclamation issued by Governor Elguezabal giving Santa Anna's decision on the question as to which city should be the location for the capital of the state; Monclova or Leona Vicario.

    Governor Elguezabal reports here that Santa Anna, after hearing from the various parties to the controversy (including Senator Victor Blanco and Juan Nepomuceno Almonte, who had just returned from an inspection of Coahuila and Texas), has ruled that the capital of the state should remain at Monclova and that Elguezabal should continue as governor until new elections can be held for governor, vice governor, and representatives to the federal and state congress. (The full text of Santa Anna's decision is given in Arrillaga's Recopilacion for 1835, pp. 192-195). Those such as VillaseƱor who had opposed the federal government in the recent revolts were barred as candidates from this coming election.

    The message closes with Elguezabal's call for these elections to be held in January, 1835. See Streeter No. 801 for proclamation made two days later regarding this election. Housed in a quarter-bound marbled paper and brown leather case with integral brown cloth chemise. Gilt titles on the spine. A few glue stains and binding marks at left edge.

    Reference: Streeter 800.
