Description

Excerpt from Observations, Historical, Geographical and Descriptive: In a Series of Letters, Written During a Visit to Austin's Colony, With a View to Permanent Settlement in That Country, in the Autumn of 1831 Spanish government, uniformly discouraged all attempts to penetrate into the country. It was the policy of the government, that completely locked up Texas, and all the Spanish American possessions, and excluded even visiters and travel lers. It was a favourite saying of the Spanish Captain General Of the internal provinces, Don N emisio Salcedo, that he would stop the birds from flying over the boundary line between Texas and the United States, if it Were in his power. This rigid policy prevented'any one from at tempting to explore the country by land, for perpetual imprisonment was the inevitable result Of detection and capture.
