    Joaquín de Arredondo was made commandant of the eastern division of the Provincias Internas in 1813.

In this document a customs official has asked for clarification of exemptions to the 8% tax levied to maintain troops in the area: "In Nuevo Santander exemptions are Laredo, Revilla, Mier, Camargo, Reynosa and Congregacion de Refugio...Exempt is the Province of Texas, reduced in actuality to two military points...". From the Taking of Texas Collection.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
