The small Texas configuration is prominently shown, including the towns of San Antonio and San Felippe de Austin. Little Rock, here labeled Arkopolis, is identified as well as Sante Fe, Albuquerque and Taos. The map extends south from New California to the Yucatan with a large inset entitled Guatemala or the United Provinces of Central America.
