TEXAS COLONIZATION.
El Ciudadano Cosme Furlong, Gobernador del Estado Libro y Soberano de Puebla.... Puebla: Imprenta del Gobierno, February 15, 1834.
Printed broadside, 436 x 310 mm, with the decree dated 4 de Febrero de 1834, folds, minor worming, split at the margin of horizontal fold.

Early broadside printing of the decree of Vice-President Valentin Gomez Farias, the acting president, asserting the government's desire to aid in the colonization of Texas. Using the power established by the law of April 6, 1830, the acting President of Mexico Cosme Furlong published this decree in order to reinvigorate the Mexican colonization of the state of Texas and Coahuila. By 1830, it had been clear to many that Texas was in danger of being annexed by the United States, and Gomez Farias here makes a final attempt to solidify Mexico's hold on the region. Rare. See Streeter Texas 812 for February 4 decree.
