of unrecorded events, as well as to correct errors in history made
for lack of it.
The following monographs from Dr. Bolton's pen have been
published in THiE QUARTERLY in addition to the ones above named:
"Tienda de Cuervo's Ynspeccion of Laredo, 1757" (VI, 189) ; "The
Spanish Abandonment and Reoccupation of East Texas, 1773-1779"
(IX, 67); "The Founding of Mission Rosario; A Chapter in the
History of the Gulf Coast" (X, 113); "Spanish Mission Records at
San Antonio" (X, 297); "The Native Tribes about the East
Texas Missions" (XI, 249); "The Jumano Indians in Texas,
1650-1771" (XX, 66); "The Spanish Occupation of Texas, 1519-
1690," (XVI, 1); "Spanish Activities on the Lower Trinity
River, 1746-1771" (XVI, 339); "The Founding of the Missions
on the San Gabriel River, 1745-1749" (XVII, 323); "New Light
on Manuel Lisa and the Spanish Fur Trade" (XVII, 61); "Be-
ginnings of Mission Nuestra Sefiora del Refugio" (XIX, 400);
"The Location of La Salle's Colony on the Gulf of Mexico"
(XXVII, 171); "Notes on Clark's 'The Beginnings of Texas' "
(XII, 148). His publications after industrious search of these
records are all valuable. He corrected previous writers as to the
place of La Salle's murder; and first established by maps and
then personally found and identified the ruins of Fort St. Louis
on the Garcitas River (not at the mouth of the Lavaca as appears
in all previous histories). But perhaps the most valuable and
useful of his special studies and the one which must necessarily
be used by all future historians is entitled "The Spanish Occu-
pation of Texas, 1519-1690." No preceding historian had ever
examined, or had access to all the material there digested and
arranged by Dr. Bolton, nor had been so well equipped for the
work. In arrangement and subject matter it completely covers
the ground, save that of the "Wanderings of Cabeza de Vaca,"
which one would suspect, from reading it, Dr. Bolton especially
left open for detailed geographical, botanical and ethnological re-
search by student investigators.
But Bolton has not been alone in this field. Governor 0. M.
Roberts had published "Prehistoric Races in Texas" (I, 145);
M. M. Kenney, "Tribal Society Among Texas Indians" (I, 26);
Rev. Edmond J. P. Schmitt, "Who was Juchereau de Saint-
Denis?" (I, 204) and "Ven. Maria Jesus de Agreda: A Correc-
Here’s what’s next.
