There are no counties formed west of the 101st meridian. The Salt Plains lay to the east of the Staked Plain, and much of central Texas is labeled Rolling Table Lands. The hills are shown through hachure. With insets of the panhandle and the vicinity of Galveston. The county development is consistent with 1854 with the newly formed counties of Hill, Madison, and Burnet, although Hidalgo county does not appear, despite being organized in 1852.
