A. Etats-Unis et Nouvelle Bretagne. The United States here stretches all the way to California with the acquisition of the Southwest from Mexico. A large Region de L'Or (Gold Region) is identified in the vicinity of Sacramento. A small New Mexico territory is surrounded by the much larger Upper or New California and the new state of Texas. Large Missouri, Iowa and Indian territories occupy the Plains, and the border with Canada reflects current boundaries. Decorated by a keyboard style border.

B. Mexique. This map shows most of the new state of Texas with the Mexican boundary along the Gila River. It is filled with good detail of the region and names Indian tribes, rivers, forts, settlements and missions.
