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.
