From William H. Emory’s "Notes of a Military Reconnaissance, from Fort Leavenworth, in Missouri, to San Diego, in California..."

At the time this view was done, most of the southwest, including Texas and California was under Mexican rule. This view comes from an early U.S. Government survey report. In his book "America on Stone" (Doubleday, 1931), Harry T. Peters states that all the work from the lithography firm of C. B. Graham "has an extraordinary excellence".
