Cover: "On the state of the troops that garrison the frontier line of the
nine interior provinces of New Spain." Watercolor by Ram6n de Murillo.

Indias, Seville, Spain.
There are few eyewitness works of art from the Spanish period that relate
to Texas, but Ram6n de Murrillo's watercolor of a leatherjacket soldier
from the Texas frontier is one of them. Painted perhaps in 1804, it, along
with two other watercolors, accompanied Murrillo's plan for the reform
of New Spain's defenses, which John Wheat has translated andJesis F. de
la Teja has annotated and introduced in this issue of the Quarterly.
