EL EXMO. SR. VICE-PRESIDENTE DE LOS ESTADOS-UNIDOS MEXICANOS SE HA SERVIDO DIRIGIRME EL DECRETO QUE SIGUE [caption title].
Mexico. Aug. 17, 1833. - [2]pp. Folio. Single folded sheet. Some worming to first outer leaf and gutter. Very clean. Very good. This document is a decree from the Vice President of los Estados-Unidos Mexicos distributed to the parishes of Alta and Baja California. It states the government's intention to secularize the parishes in order to regain the attentions and loyalties of the native community. This move sought to make the local parishes smaller, and return land to the natives. It also includes details of payment to each parish, to be used as aid to the community. These actions by the government were a last ditch attempt to convert the native communities to Spanish ways and to gain their allegiance to the crown.
