Monterrey, March 12, 1840. Manuscript copy, folio, 2 pp, of a decree issued on Feb. 10, same year. This decree is to award military decorations to those soldiers who distinguished themselves defending against the French during the Pastry War, and those who participated in the Texas campaign -- a sort of Legion of Honor. Almonte was the "natural" son of Fr. Morelos, and accompanied his father during the revolution in his travels and battles. Shortly before Morelos was captured and executed, he sent his son to New Orleans, where he was raised and educated. He returned to Mexico after independence and was active in Texas affairs. In fact, he was one of Santa Anna's generals at the Battle of the Alamo, and pleaded unsuccesfully with Santa Anna to spare the survivors. This is a manuscript copy of Streeter Texas pt. II, [957: "No copy has been located of the first separate publication of this or of a subsequent republication by any of the different states." OCLC lists only the copy at the Bancroft Library of the printed, Feb. 10th bando. Fine copy.
