The act admitting Louisiana to statehood in 1812 contained a clause defining its original boundaries. Texas declared its Independence in 1835. This survey was made shortly thereafter and appears to have been the basis for a more detailed survey in 1840 to determine the eastern boundary of Texas. A most desirable and rare map.
