    Scope and Content

    These documents, gathered by Edward S. Wallace, were purchased by The Bancroft Library in April 1960. They include originals and transcripts of selected items from the Mexican Ministry of Foreign Relations: correspondence, a study on tropical plants by Eugenio Bánó, a study on the rural farm problem in Germany by J. Corbel, and a collection of seals from various countries.
    The original manuscripts for the most part consist of routine letters, but contain many autograph signatures of important historical personalities. The first nine documents, 1764-1766, relate to the payment of a tax known as the Media Anata at Zacatecas. The transcripts, from internal evidence, probably were made from material in the archives of the ministry. A partial index of correspondents may be found at the end of this report.
