his own plans to remedy them, and various recommendations for
political measures which would make his military plans more
effective. One month later Lucas Alaman, the new minister of
relations, laid these recommendations, with certain additions of
his own, before Congress, and two months later still that body
complied with the requests by passing the Decree of April 6, 1830,
which was to go into effect on the day of its passage. The re-
sponsibility for that section of the law which prohibits further
immigration from the United States seems to rest upon Alaman,
though practically all of the other provisions are directly traceable
to suggestions made by Terdn.
It is not the purpose of this paper to follow the attempts to
enforce the decree. The radical measures comprised in Article
11 were bitterly resented by the Texans, and were probably the
most potent factors in the later friction that resulted, as Teran
had so clearly foreseen, in the loss of Texas to the Mexican nation.
Had TerAn lived and been retained in his position as special com-
missioner and military governor of the colonies, the story might
be different, but, as Filisola says, the whole fruit of his labors
was destroyed by Santa Anna's overthrow of the Bustamante gov-
ernment in 1832.
