Identifier: ELIBR-000119
Scope and Contents Acts of the Visit of the Royal Commissioners (Auto de la general visita) was transcribed from archives in Mexico. These volumes record the distribution of land by the royal Spanish commissioners in 1767 to the Rio Grande settlements of Laredo, Mier, Camargo, Revilla (later Guerrero), and Reynosa, which were established by José de Escandón. About 170 of the porciones granted to individual settlers at that time are located within the present boundaries of Texas.
