The Spanish considered Louisiana dangerously underpopulated, and thus tried various devices to attractgroups of families, guaranteeing extensive landholdings as well as social preeminence in the newly formed community. The man who brought in emigrants was a POBLADOR, a "populator." Boone was one such, receiving a grant of 1,000 arpents on the Missouri, then offered 10,000 more to coax an additional 100 families. C.
