    Broadside Decree Reinstalling in Monterey the Legislature of Nuevo Reyno de Leon, Coahuila and Tejas. One page, 8" x 11.75", in Spanish, Mexico, April 22, 1823. With heading: Primera Secretaria de Estado. Sesion de Gobierno. One page. Printed signature of Lucas Alamán. Decree of the Soberano Congreso [Sovereign Mexican Constituent Congress] passed April 19, 1823, approved by the Supremo Poder Ejecutivo [Supreme Executive Power] April 21, and promulgated on April 22 by Lucas Alamán, reinstalling in Monterey the diputacion provincial (legislative body/province delegation) of Nuevo Reyno de Leon, Coahuila, and Texas. Housed in a quarter-bound chemise of green cloth and green leather over boards with gilt lettering to the spine. Unevenly toned. Lightly chipped at the left edge with minor damage to the lower left corner.

    Less than two weeks prior to this decree, on April 8, the congress issued an order exiling Emperor Iturbide to Italy. It declared "that all acts of the government from the 19th May to the 29th March last are illegal, and subject to the revision of the present government, which may confirm or revoke them." Iturbide had approved an identical decree providing for the provincial deputation at Monterrey on February 25 (see Streeter 695). In this decree the Soberano Congreso confirms this action and states that the individuals chosen to represent each of the three provinces would remain. This was the first decree to be issued by the provisional government regarding Coahuila and Texas, following the termination of Iturbide's empirical reign.

    Reference: Streeter 696.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
