Arredondo, Joaquin (Comandante General)
Monterrey/Mexico. October 13, 1815 - January 31, 1817. 24p. Letters. Originals.
Due to illness the regimiento de Extremadura is left without a leader as well as the Provincia de Texas being without a governor. Lopez was sent to Texas to take over military and political functions, receives notice later to leave his post as governor of Texas feels his reputation injured but stays on. Arredondo had troops of area moved to Monclova despite the fact that rebels were expected to arrive by ship, action was taken because Lopez had intimated that he would not mobilize troops in the face of rebel attack, also is accused of impeding shipment of goods to troops, Lopez also given order to retire all captains who were not properly equipped to their homes and that they should not be receiving salaries because without the necessary arms and horses they were useless as soldiers. Lopez did not comply; barely legible letter by bacallo saying that Lopez is justifiably upset over being removed from post; mentions the effects of the scarcity of tobacco mentioned earlier, Echandia proposed as new Head of the Provincia de Texas, advisor suggests that the military conflict that would ensue the dismissal of Lopez and the replacement by Echandia is not worth it, Lopez was an interim governor because of illness of the governor and teniente Coronel, he however was not aware of this and therein lies the problem; final decision being that Lopez should reintegrate himself back into the regimiento de Extremadura.
