Summary: 
Considering the annexation of Luisiana to the Spanish colonies, de Blanc (commander of the army) requests an extension of the jurisdiction of Natchitoches (Luisiana), establishing the limit with Nacodoches (Texas) in the Savina River. This would give the local population access to good farming land and better resources in general, and would thus strengthen this important frontier. The proposal is accepted. Two reports on this issue included in the expediente summarize the process of colonization of the territory between Texas and Luisiana, and how it was affected by the transference of Luisiana to Spain and by changes in the relations with the Indians.
