Decree Authorizing Governor to Appoint a Superior Court Judge in Texas
1834 Decree from the State of Coahuila and Texas [Texas]. Vidaurri y Villesenor, Francisco Vidaurri. [Decree Authorizing Governor Vidaurri y Villesenor to Appoint a Superior Court Judge in Texas]. Monclova, May 5, 1834. 12" x 8-1/2" broadside with heading: Gobierno Supremo del Estado Libre de Coahuila y Tejas. Signed in type: Jose Miguel Falcon, Secretario. Untrimmed edges, light toning. A notably well-preserved copy. $750. * One of the grievances of the Texans in the period of 1832-1833 was with the administration of justice in the province, which declared its independence in 1835. It seems possible this action to promptly replace a judge during the Congressional recess may have been, in part, to respond to those concerns. No copies listed on OCLC.
