    Index of Orders and Decrees of the Mexican Government

    Indice de las Ordenes y Decretos espedidos por el Honorable Congreso de este Estado, desde el año de 1824, hasta fin de el de 1828. Eight integral pages, 8.5" x 12", in Spanish, "Coahuila y Tejas," March 30, 1829. Titled An Index Of The Orders And Decrees By The Honorable Congress Of This State, Since The Years 1824 To End Of 1828. Dated and signed in print at end: Secretaria del supremo gobierno del Estado de Coahuila y Tejas 30 de Marzo de 1829. Santiago de Valle. Secretario. This useful compilation indexes the proceedings of the Constituent Congress on pages one through three and those of the Constitutional Congress on pages four through eight, providing official documentation regarding the joining together of the Mexican provinces of Nuevo León, Coahuila, and Texas. Housed in a gray cloth chemise and slipcase with leather spine label and gilt lettering. Sewn at the left edge binding the leaves together. Scattered spots of foxing and toning to the edges.

    The first step in the process was to detach Nuevo León (May 7, 1824), then elect a constituent congress. This was accomplished at Saltillo in August 1824, when a provisional governor was named for the state. That same month, a provisional chief was appointed for Texas. Four months later, in December 1824, the Department of Texas was legally established as a subdivision of the state of Coahuila and Texas. On March 11, 1827, the Constitution of Coahuila and Texas was adopted with the state being divided into three departments. That number was eventually increased to seven departments: Saltillo, Parras, Monclova, Rosas, Bexar, Brazos, and Nacogdoches.
