Concerning exemption of certain items from taxes

Source: Bexar Archives, R.B. Blake Collection, Supp., Vol. V, Pg. 20.


"I am in receipt of the superior order of March 14th last, which you were pleased to enclose in your official letter of the 15th inst.  I have been informed thereby of the doubts which were raised by the general administration regarding the exemption of tallow, salted or jerked meats, and rice from all taxes.  I understand that the said superior authority has seen fit to declare that for the present salted or jerked meats and tallow from Buenos Aires shall be exempted from the sales tax on their first sale, and that the exemption in favor of rice applies to that which is bought for exportation and not to that which is sold for the purpose of re-sale or consumption.  I shall give due obedience thereto.

"May God preserve you many years.
