Date: October 1, 1846
Creator: unknown
Description: Clipping from a newsletter dated October 1, 1846 that includes a letter from Huth & Co stating that Texas has good soil, the climate is healthy and all are thriving and states that Pfanner must have been motivated by something other than truth to say such bad things about Texas in his previously published letter. The writer goes on to explain the process of distributing land and refrains from explaining why Pfanner's last letter was written from Mexico and not Texas. Sign by Huth & Co. on September 24, 1846 in Neufreystaedt. Letters and articles are translated into German.
