Treaty of Velasco which ended the Texas War with Mexico...
Item # 680072
August 20, 1836
NILES' WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, Aug. 20, 1836
* Treaty of Velasco
* General Santa Anna
* Texas Revolution ending
Inside has "Latest From Texas and Mexico" which includes a significant letter signed in type by: Antonio Lopez De Santa Ana in which he agrees to the treaty between Texas and Mexico, known as the Treaty of Velasco.
This is followed by the "Articles of the treaty concluded between his excellency Don Antonio Lopez de Santa Ana...president of the Mexican republic...and his excellency Don David Burnet, President of the republic of Texas" which includes all ten articles and the various signatures at the end. Bit close-trimmed to portions of these reports but no word loss.
This document is noted as May 4th, 1836, which I believe to be a slight typo as the document was finalized on May 14.
Complete in 16 pages, 6 1/4 by 10 inches, some foxing, a bit irregular at the spine.
