    [Broadside] Rare Decree Reinstalling in Monterey the Legislature of Nuevo Reyno de Leon, Coahuila, and Tejas. Mexico: April 22, 1823. With heading: Primera Secretaria de Estado. Sesion de Gobierno. One page. Imperial Octavo. Print signature by Alaman. 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 Alaman, reinstalling in Monterey the diputacion provincial (legislative body/province delegation) of Nuevo Reyno de Leon, Coahuila, and Texas.

    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. Green half-calf case with gilt lettering. Minor age toning, else fine. From the collection of Darrel Brown.

    Reference: Streeter 696.
