    [Broadside] Rare Decree Regarding Election Procedures for the State of Coahuila y Tejas by Governor Juan Martin Veramendi. Leona Vicario, with heading Gobierno Supremo del Estado de Coahuila y Tejas, February 4, 1833. One page. Imperial Octavo. Dated and signed in print at end: Es dado en la ciudad de Leona-Vicario á los 4 dias del mes de febrero de 1833. Juan Martin de Veramendi. Santiago del Valle secretario.

    On December 18, 1832, Juan Martin de Veramendi took up the duties of Governor of the state of Coahuila and Texas. This decree provides Santa Anna's argument for the necessity of new elections and gives his approval of the Zavaleta plan to accomplish this goal. The tract then lists ten articles spelling out the details, including procedures concerning the elections of individuals to serve in the State Congress, president and vice-president, and two senators to the National Congress. As a result of the elections, Santa Anna was elected President.

    In one instance here Veramendi is incorrectly identified as vice governor; he was actually governor at the time, having taken up his duties as governor on December 18, 1832. Voting was held in the various states and carried out without opposition, resulting in Santa Anna's election as president of Mexico. Red half-calf case with gilt lettering on spine. Clean and sharp, in very fine condition. From the collection of Darrel Brown.

    Reference: Streeter Texas 789. Locating only his copy. Eberstadt 162:876. Jenkins 68.

    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.
