I am having a ball reading this diary of a Fray (Padre) Gaspar Jose De Solis of the College of Frays (Padres) of Guadalupe, Zacatecas, Mexico. Also known as Colegio Nuestra Senora De Guadalupe.

Year is 1767 and he leaves the college in Zacatecas to travel up north to Texas while documenting in detail things he encounters along the way. Such as making stops at haciendas that extracted silver.

One of those haciendas he stopped at was of Maria Illdelfonso De La Campa y Cos. The daughter of Don Fernando De La Campa y Cos. He described that in that area there were a lot of carboneros.

It took him 16 days to get to Texas and he visits the missions. He met the Governor of Texas Hugo O'Connor," at the Mission San Antonio De Bejar then he went on to the other missions.
