Texas or New Estemadura and Pecan Point

Scarce map of Mexico, shortly after its Independence from Spain.

One of the most noteworthy features on the map is Pecan Point on the Red River. This is the place where in 1818, the Reverend William Stevenson, a Methodist preacher, held the first Protestant church services in what is now Oklahoma.

The map's primary detail is long the Rio Grande, extending north to beyond Spanish Peaks, with James Peak and Long's Peak Noted.

The map references Texas or New Estemadura, an early short lived name for the region.  

Lake Timpanogos is shown (Great Salt Lake), fed from the east by what appears to be the Lewis River. Below Lake Timpanogos is the mythical second Salt Lake (L. Salado), surrounded by Indian Tribes.  The equally mythical Rio San Felipe extends from east of the unshown Sierra Nevada Mountains to an outlet in the Pacific, south of Monterey.
