Description

    [Texas Revolution]. José Justo Corro Decree as Interim President of Mexico Opening the Ports North of Matamoros for the importation of provisions for the Mexican Army in Texas. One page, 8.5" x 12.25". At top [in Spanish]: "El C. Jose Fernandez de Madrid, Interim Governor of the District". The decree issued in July 16, 1836, opens all ports north of Matamoros for use in supplying the Mexican army. Provisions listed at the end include flour, rice, sugar, cocoa, chocolate, coffee, and more. This decree was likely issued as symbolic gesture as all ports north of Matamoros were held by the Texans. Slight variant of Streeter 881, which has a heading that reads: "Secretaria de Hacienda."

    Reference: Streeter 881.

    Condition: Near fine with wide margins, and a few spots of foxing along the edges. Pencil notations at top and on verso.
