This chapter focuses on Victor Considerant's plan for a settlement in Uvalde Canyon in West Texas after leaving the Reunion. It explains that as Considerant was negotiating for the purchase of land at Uvalde Canyon, the leadership of the Colonization Society decided to dissolve the colony at the Reunion, which was all in his favor. After the purchase, Considerant went back to France to report back on the situation in Texas and provide information for all prospective investors and settlers. This chapter suggests that this was Considerant's last attempt to play a guiding role within the Fourierist movement.
