    More Information:

    Concerning the proposal of a law to the Mexican Congress by a group known as Comisiones Unidas de Hacienda y Tejas to help remedy the then deplorable state of Mexican government finances. Written by F.N. del Barrio on April 24, 1841, replying to the March 19 pamphlet by Joaquin Lebrija and Ignacio de la Barrera titled Analisis e Impugnacion del Proyecto de Ley Sobre Amortizacion de la moneda de cobre, sobre contratar la renta del tabaco, y sobre arbitrios para la guerra de Tejas. The "war with Texas" was used by the Mexican government as a battle cry in their campaign for increased revenues. Other than in the title of this pamphlet and in the title of the Lebrija and Barrera pamphlet del Barrio is criticizing, "Texas" is not mentioned at all. This is one of about a dozen pamphlets printed at Mexico City from March to May, 1841, relating to expenses, which have "guerra de Tejas" or "Tejas" in their titles.
