Image title taken from verso of plan.The marquis de San Miguel de Aguayo, don Jospeh de Azlor y Virto de Vera, was appointed governor of the provinces of Coahuila and Texas in 1719. When he left Texas, the province was indelibly Spanish, had ten missions, four presidios, and over 300 Spaniards. He had effectively eradicated French hopes to claims in Texas. Juan Antonio de la Peña, a Franciscan friar and chaplain, was the chronicler of the Aguayo expedition.
