            First edition. Jenkins, Printer in Three Republics 322. Not in Spell. By this statement, the Congress adheres the state to the Plan of Jalapa (also known as the “Plan del Ejército de reserva”), a revolt by Santa-Anna and others against President Vicente Guerrero, who was forced to resign and was soon executed. He was succeeded by Santa-Anna himself. Here the state threatens anyone who actively opposes this plan with execution merely upon an accusation. The Plan of Jalapa instituted a centralist administration. This change of power resulted in leaders in Mexico City becoming more suspicious of the United States and of Anglo colonists in Texas, thirty thousand of whom had arrived in Texas by the year this decree was printed by Bangs. The imposition of a centralist form of government was among the irritants eventually leading the Texans to revolt against Mexico. ($750-1,500)
