Courrier D'Alsace. Cinquiéme année, No. 105, September 4, 1846

Description:

Newsletter dated September 1, 1846 with a letter from Vicar Pfanner published on September 1, 1846. The newspaper has requested the truth about the settlement in Texas. Pfanner discusses how he had to leave his own people for Mexico, which is where he is writing from since he claims letters sent from Texas get destroyed if they aren't positive. Pfanner's opinion is that Texas only offers opportunities for already well-to-do settlers. Note from the publisher at end describes their obligation to publish a note refuting the content of Pfanner's letter. The letter and other articles are translated into German.
