Professional Reproduction of Stephen F. Austin's 1836 Map outlines each land grant plus and Colonies. Inscribed with: "The Latitude and Longitude of the Saltillo Monterey Laredo Bexar Nacogdoches and the Point Where the Boundary Line Leaves the Sabine are from the Observations of General Teran of the Mexican Army". On the lower left Key of the Map states: "The country southwest and west of Monclova is very mountainous and generally destitute of timber. Water is very scarce. The population is confined to the towns and villages. The soil is perfectly sterile except in valleys which can be irrigated. The mountains afford a scanty pasturage for sheep and goats. Very good wheat is raised at San Fernando and Santa Rosa, Monclova, Saltillo, Parras and in their vicinities, and large quantities of wine and brandy are made at the later place, but no cultivation is deemed profitable without irrigation. The temperature of Saltillo is cool owing to its great elevation. Monterrey is very hot. The ancient name of Saltillo has been changed by act of the legislator to LEONA VICARIO. By terms of which land is acquired in Texas, the contractor are required to locate on their respective tracts a stated number of families within 6 years from the date of each grant.
