MOREMOVE From: "Reflections on Louisiana" by Vincente Folch, Governor of West Florida, circa 1804, written in Baton Rouge [?]. <Every foreigner who is not in the service of Spain should be exiled from the provinces of Mexico, and all communication between the citizens of the United States, of any kind whatsoever, and his Majesty's subjects and their settlement should be solemnly prohibited. . . . It is a matter of the greatest importance for the American settlements in the Missouri River to be driven from it, even those which have been indirectly premitted. I am assured that a person named Boone, who is the same one whol first penetreated the wildernesses of Kentucky [in original Spanish: Kentuqui] is at present settled on the Missouri, at a distance of fifty leagues from its confluence with the Mississippi, with a number of his adherents. This does not admit any doubt but that, if those settlers be allowed to advance, they will very quickly explore the right path which will lead them to the capital of Sante Fe.> James Alexander Robertson, LOUISIANA UNDER THE RULE OF SPAIN, FRANCE, AND THE UNITED STATES, 1785-1807 (Cleveland: Arthur H. Clark, 1911) 2:343
