Attractive representation of the present-day Southwestern United States, Texas and Mexico. The map continues into Central America in an inset of Guatimala. The Independent Republic of Texas is bound by the Nueces River rather than the Rio Grande on its southern border. In Upper or New California, there is an American Fur Co. Depot on the eastern shore of L. Youta or Salt L.. In New Mexico, the Great Spanish Road is shown from the Red River in Texas to Santa Fe, and then heading south through the length of Mexico.
