ABOUT the time of the establishment of the first
American Colonists in Texas, Mexico had achieved
her Independence of Old Spain. In 1821, Don Augustin
Iturbide, a Royal officer, availing himself of half a
million of dollars, with which he had been entrusted,
and assisted by Guerrero and Victoria, revolted from
the Spanish Government. The result was, in 1822, the
assembling of a National Congress, and the establishment
of a limited monarchy, in conformity with the
plan of Iquala and the Treaty of Cordova. The Span,
ish Constitution was also provisionally adopted. The
Executive Department was administered by a Regency,
of which Iturbide was chosen President, who was also
appointed Admiral and Generalissimo of the Army and
Navy, with a salary of $12,000.
Serious dissensions soon arose between the Generalissimo
and Congress, and the Regency were divided.
