By 1719, only two Spaniards live at Los Adaes (east most post).  San  Antonio had civilians and military and five missions.  Spanish had many rules for  visas and immigration which led to stagnant land, unlike the British who didn’t  have such rules on the Eastern Seaboard.  This allows Spain to hold Texas for  almost 300 years.  After Spanish succession, France declared war on Spain.  French went to Los Adaes and took over the two Spaniards.  One Spaniard saw  them stealing chickens and ran away and told the Spanish, however only seven  Frenchmen were coming.  Spain heard of this and immediately tries to occupy  East Texas again.  Before this, only about 70 Spanish soldiers in Texas, after  there are 269 soldiers.  This third occupation kept France out of Texas and made  the capital Los Adaes for 30 years.  In 1722, Aguayo establishes one of three  major points in Texas, La Bahia.  The other two are Los Adaes and San Antonio.  This is the high point of Spanish Texas.  In 1727, a Spanish inspection tour takes  place and they decide to cut soldiers in half, leaving Adaes with only 60 soldiers
