Contains John H. Clark's important 'Map of the United States and Texas Boundary Line and Adjacent Territory Determined and Surveyed in 1857-8-9-60.' Baker discusses the history of the Texas surveys, beginning with Jones and Brown (1859), Clark (1859-60), Johnston (1857), Macomb (1859), Darling' (1868), Chaffee and Major (1869 and 1872), Major (1874), Chaney (1881), Mabry (1882-85), Taylor and Fuss (1883), Pritchett (1892), and Preston (1900). Clark completed the map in 1860 but not all the work as the Civil War intervened; the final report was not published until 1882 in Senate Ex. Doc No. 70., but without the large map which was published for the first time in this report by Marcus Baker in 1902.
