San Antonio contains from 5 to 6 thousand inhabitants. It is very compact. Very narrow streets. When you get to the end of the streets, you are at the end of town - nothing beyond it but a wild prairie over which the Indian roams as free and wild as the ground that he treads.
The tall spire and dome that dominate the center of town are those of San Fernando Cathedral.
