The titles, loosely translated, include: "Report and Accounts of the Avio Bank Presented in Compliance with the Provisions of Article 9 of the Act of October 16, 1830;" "Memorial of the Secretary of the Treasury, Read at the Chambers of the General Congress on May, 20, 1833;" "Second Part of the Report of the National Treasury of the Mexican Republic. General Account Securities and Distribution of Income of the National Treasury, in Fiscal Year 1836-1837;" and "Report of the Secretary of the Treasury Read to the Honorable Congress of the State of Mexico, May 13, 1850." Included are reports by national finance ministers.
"On October 16, 1830, the Mexican Congress passed an Act authorizing the establishment of a Banco de Avio for the purpose of stimulating national industries. Its capital was fixed at P1,000,000, and provision was made for the creation of this capital through the assignment of one-fifth of the customs dues collected from cotton importations. However, no progress was made, and on May 25, 1832, a law was passed authorizing the Executive to negotiate a loan of P100,000 in order to provide the bank with capital. Finally, the institution actually got under way, but little was achieved. Then the war with Texas broke out. On January 20, 1836, a law was passed prohibiting the government from making application of the customs funds in the manner prescribed with respect to the bank- and it expired."
