57. MEXICO (Republic). LAWS (April 25, 1835).

Manuel Diez de Bonilla, Gobernador Constitucional del Estado Libre de México. [Toluca, April 30, 1835]. Except for a trifling bit of dustsoiling and Very fine. Unrecorded Toluca broadside issue of Streeter 833. With the passage of this law, many Anglos in Texas concluded that such arbitrary actions and the unrelenting dictatorship of President Antonio López de Santa Anna reflected the death of the republicanism and liberalism of the Constitution of 1824 under which they had united with the Mexican nation.
